This year sworn advocates throughout Latvia will provide free advice. Within national limits consultations will be provided in remote settings, each consultation provider will determine the procedures and modalities for providing advice. A person who wishes to be consulted within the framework of the Advocacy days, in the vortal www.advokatura.lv may choose an advocate who advises on the subject of interest in the relevant legal sector. Residents with limited access to legal aid are particularly invited to apply for free advice.
How do I apply for Advocacy days?
- In the vortal www.advokatura.lv a list of advocates providing free legal advice is available under the heading “Advocacy days”.
- The selected advocate should be contacted individually in order to reach an agreement on the timing of the consultation and the area of the rights requiring advice. For the simplest issues it might be enough with consultation via phone call.
- In view of the limited consultation time, advocates are calling on citizens to apply in advance. In the event that you cannot attend consultation, please cancel a consultation reservation so that another person can use this option.
In 2010, the The Latvian Collegium of Sworn Advocates established a mission to promote the profession of sworn advocate – to act in the public interest, providing it with practical assistance according to the laws of the best conscience.
