Permanent formation and specialisation
Permanent formation :
Your lawyer is a legal professional. Whether he works alone or in an association, whether he is a generalist or specialised, your lawyer is bound to regularly attend formations in order to maintain and reinforce his competences (see articles 11 to 14 Codex).
In that perspective, the Liege Bar has built strong synergies with the Law Faculty of the University of Liege. The Bar and the University, within the Commission Université Palais (CUP), organise well-renowned conference cycles in Liege, Brussels and Charleroi.

Favourite fields of law and specialisation :
Lawyers may advertise the fields they prefer dealing with and in which they thus have acquired greater competence (see articles 4.60 to 4.62 Code of Ethics Avocats.be and 15 Codex).
They may also have their capacity of specialist validated by the Bar on presentation of a complete file demonstrating such specialisation. A lawyer can only be registered for a maximum of two specialties. Only the Bar is entitled to bestow, upon a lawyer, the title of a specialist in a field of law (see articles 4.63 to 4.70 Code of Ethics Avocats.be and 107 Codex).
Your lawyer at the heart of europe and of the world
Liege is ideally situated at the intersection of road, river and air routes, and as such links up to no less than four European states.
Building on this long-term business and cultural interlinkage, the Liege lawyers naturally support and assist their clients in their regional, inter-regional and international relationships, especially in the context of the MEUSE–RHINE EUREGION, and regardless of the language used.
Moreover, the Bar, alongside a number of lawyers, is a member of international organisations such as the International Association of Lawyers, Conférence Internationale des Barreaux de tradition juridique commune, European Bars Federation, Avocats Sans Frontières, International Criminal Bar, World Coalition against the death penalty and, through AVOCATS.BE, the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE).
In the unlikely event of a fault or an error, your lawyer's professional liability is covered by a civil liability insurance policy. This covers any damage caused in the exercise of his profession, either personally or through his employees or trainees.
Active and accessible bar
