THE HOUSE OF LEGAL SCIENCE #SantRaimon23
For the Council of the Bar Association of Barcelona it is a true honour to address you a few words to present you what will be the great Festivity of the Bar: the commemoration of Sant Raimon de Penyafort, which, year after year, we look forward to and celebrate with our best wishes.
It will be an excellent occasion to meet again and share joys, fun activities and cultural events, with the Choir, the Theater group or the padel and football matches. Also to see the oratorical skills, in a different and ingenious way, of the young lawyers participating in the traditional Amadeu Maristany competition; as well as the Diverticab or the children’s tours and the chocolate bar designed for the little ones to enjoy.
At the same time, the festivity of Sant Raimon de Penyafort gives us the ideal opportunity to continue offering the legal profession a training based on rigor and excellence, this being one of our main objectives to make the Barcelona Bar Association the house of legal science. Those of us who practice the profession of law must be ready to always provide the best service, both for the benefit of the public, in each case and in each matter that we undertake with rigor and honesty, as well as in the interest and defense of the ‘Rule of Law and the most fundamental freedoms. In this sense, from the Barcelona Bar Association we firmly believe in quality training, which is one that, in addition to thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of the legal system, is imbued with the principles and deontological values that must necessarily inspire the exercise of our profession.
On the other hand, the activities coordinated by the Bar’s International Department, such as the “Trobades de Barcelona-Memorial Jacques Henry” or the “International Legal Brunch” occupy a prominent place in this year’s program , which give us the possibility to open up to the rest of the world and strengthen ties with other institutions that, like ICAB, share the vision of law to serve people.
Finally, we will pay tribute to the colleagues who have completed 25 years in this Corporation, as well as those who have trusted us for 50 years in a Solemn Session in which we will present the various Awards and Medals of the Bar, in recognition of who, with their work, have proven to be a true example of professionalism, but above all, of an incomprarable inspiring human condition.
