1960 Brussels Belgium
Established following congress of the Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA), Sep 1960, where participants discussed the need for a representative body that would act in the interests of lawyers before the H-XD0665 - European Community, whose construction was perceived as a threat to the independence of their profession. Given this perception, an “agreement-in-principle” was obtained to establish a body of representatives from the then-six H-XD0665 - European Community Member States. Today, the CCBE has grown to include the bars and law societies of 46 countries that represent the F-XF2147 - European Union (EU) and the F-XF0847 - European Economic Area (EEA) and a wider Europe.
Study questions affecting the legal profession in member states of the European Union and formulate solutions designed to coordinate and harmonize professional practice.
