European Lawyers Day 2017: E-volving lawyers: how digital transformation can enrich the relationship between the citizen and the lawyer

The 2017 edition of European Lawyers Day (ELD) will take place on October 25th. European Lawyers Day is a day that celebrates the rule of law and the legal profession’s intrinsic role in its defence, as well as lawyers’ common values and contribution to the justice system. The theme for this year is: “E-volving lawyers: how digital transformation can enrich the relationship between the citizen and the lawyer”.

The event aims at familiarising citizens with the new technologies available to the legal profession, and their positive impact on the evolving relationship between lawyers and citizens. Each bar and law society is encouraged to organise events in their national countries to ensure that ELD gains the widest reach possible.
