Goa, as well as other Indian states, celebrates a number of public holidays. Some of them are celebrated only locally, like Goa Liberation Day, that annually falls on December 19.
All Ukrainian barristers have a reason to eagerly wait for December 19, since this day marks their professional day. Advocacy Day was established by President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma in 2002. The date was chosen to commemorate the anniversary of entering into effect of the 1992 law On Advocacy.
