Andriy Vyshnevskiy is a defense attorney, an expert at justice and public service reforms. He has 13 years of experience on management positions in high-ranking executive agencies. Since 2017, he has been a national consultant with the Council of Europe, OSCE and the UN. He is a public activist and executive director of NGO “Tomorrow’s Lawyer”.
