Top official: Holding int’l forum of young lawyers in Baku embodies Azerbaijan’s authority

Azerbaijan, Baku, April 25 / Trend /

Holding the international forum of young lawyers in Baku embodies Azerbaijan's growing international authority, economic development and achievements along with other international activities in science, culture, sports, education, head of department on work with law-enforcement agencies of the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Fuad Alasgarov said in an interview with Azerbaijani media.

"At present, Azerbaijan is the venue for holding prestigious international events in all spheres," he said. "From this point of view, holding such an event is not accidental. As it is known, Azerbaijan has been recently conducting several international events in science, culture, sports, education, etc., World Championships, global forums and conferences. This embodies Azerbaijan's growing international prestige, economic development and achievements. The work carried out to integrate into Europe and the achievements turned Azerbaijan into a reliable partner for holding joint international events."

"Azerbaijan has joined the European legal space," he added. "It has re-created the legal, judicial system and state governance system. The European Convention on Human Rights and 50 other European conventions have become an integral part of Azerbaijan's domestic law."

"Holding this forum in Azerbaijan pleases us," he said. "This is the result of the state care about young people, the result of favorable atmosphere created for the activity and initiative of young people. As it is known, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev approved the state program "Azerbaijani youth in 2011-2015". At present, the Azerbaijani youth takes its place in all spheres and justifies the trust based on support and encouragement of these actions."

"The Azerbaijani branch of the European Law Students Association (ELSA) is the organizer of this forum," he said.

"ELSA is the biggest organization of law students worldwide," he stressed. "This organization brings together more than 32,000 law students and young lawyers of 300 universities from 41 European countries. ELSA's headquarters is in Brussels. This organization ensures a platform to develop skills of law students, to acquire new knowledge and to establish relations between European law students and professional lawyers."

"Azerbaijan became a member of the organization in 2011," he said. "The ELSA-Azerbaijan organization began operating in the country. ELSA has implemented several projects in Azerbaijan since the local branch launched its activity. It has conducted symbolic trials and organized scientific meetings, supported dozens of young lawyers in their participation in international events and summer schools organized in Europe.

"The contest for the symbolic trials organized by ELSA-Azerbaijan among law students has been of great interest," he added. "By the way, the Azerbaijani Supreme Court will hold the final round of this contest within the forthcoming Baku International Forum of Young Lawyers."

"Young lawyers are the authors of the ideas and the organizers of the Baku Forum," he stressed. "In the short term, this youth has established close ties with the European Law Students Association and set up an Azerbaijani branch of the organization. The main purpose of the event is to unite all young lawyers living in different European countries, to discuss the problems of education and professional problems, job prospects, legal processes in the regional and international scale."

"There is an accelerated process of young people's active participation in all spheres," he added. "This process is a part of state policy. It is fully supported by the Azerbaijani President. Like other professions, the profession of a lawyer is within this process. It has significantly refreshed. Half the judiciary, operating in the court system today, is the individuals who have recently initiated judicial activity. About 66 percent of the candidates for judges are young people. At present, about 50 percent of employees in the Prosecutor's Office, justice and police are young people. About 80 percent of people, working in the judiciary bodies since 2006, are also young employees. About 30 percent of 850 lawyers of the Bar Association are aged under 40.

"I should stress that the dynamics of growth of these indicators for the last few years is positive," he said. "The state policy conducted toward young people today makes it possible to say that these figures will increase in subsequent years. Modern judiciary, the Bar, prosecutor's office and police, formed in accordance with European standards and regulations on the basis of transparency, have become more dynamic, more sensitive and responsive to the changes due to young professionals."

"The Baku forum will open new, attractive spheres full of hopes for young people who want to learn the profession of lawyer to launch a career in this field," he stressed.

"The name of the forum gives the reason to think so," he said. "This event, being a logical continuation of the current work, will open a new page in international cooperation, bring us closer to achieve common goals. I hope that the initiative of young people, friendship relations overcoming any boundaries and the activity to educate young lawyers in the short term will give positive results. I wish good luck to all participants in their professional activity."
