An advocate is an experienced lawyer specialised in handling legal matters of his clients. Only a member of the Bar Association is allowed to use the professional title ”advocate”.
There are ca. 2,000 advocates in Finland.
The aims of the Finnish Bar Association are to regulate and supervise advocates’ activity, to advance the quality of legal services, to train and support advocates and to advance legislation.
The Finnish Bar Association is a statutory body whose activities are regulated by the Advocates Act. The Bar is not a registered association, a trade union or an entrepreneurs union.
