Lawyers’ Day in Moldova Date in the current year: October 19, 2017

Lawyers’ Day in Moldova Moldovan lawyers celebrate their professional holiday on October 19. On Lawyers’ Day, all Moldovan judges, advocates, prosecutors, notaries, counsels, legal executives, law professors, and other legal professionals receive congratulations from their colleagues, friends and family.

In October 2001, the First Congress of Lawyers of the Republic of Moldova was held in Chisinau. One of the decisions adopted at the Congress was to establish the Union of Lawyers of Moldova. The Union is a non-governmental organization responsible for promoting the rule of law in Moldova, raising the prestige of legal professions, and improving the quality of law training programs in Moldovan universities.

Lawyers’ Day in Moldova was created to emphasize the contribution of legal professionals to promoting the values of a democratic society, shaping the legal culture of Moldova, and protecting the constitutional rights and freedoms of its citizens. Professionals dedicated to serving the cause of justice make an invaluable contribution to the assertion of the rule of law in regard to observance of fundamental human rights and freedoms, and Lawyers’ Day is an excellent occasion to recognize this contribution and to thank lawyers for their hard work.

Like other professional days, Lawyers’ Day in Moldova is not a non-working holiday unless it falls on a weekend.
