Program History

"The "Tomorrow's Lawyer" is a response to the new demands raised by the Ukrainian society towards the legal profession. Today, it is not enough for a lawyer to be an effective provider of legal services; a lawyer shall formulate and effectively communicate to the public his or her professional position regarding changes and transformations taking place in the state. For this very reason, ethics and leadership have become two cross-cutting topics of the incubator program for the cultivation of a qualitatively new generation of lawyers for whom the highest values are the rule of law, integrity and the fair justice.”
