The message reads, in part:
“Established in 2008, this holiday is intended to highlight the important role of the legal community in the life of our country. Various kinds of legal professionals firmly guard the Law, protect citizens’ constitutional rights and freedoms, contribute to the strengthening of statehood, and provide legal support for businesses and society. Your work requires deep knowledge and impeccable personal qualities such as honesty and decency, caring for others and rejecting injustice, while adhering to the best traditions of Russian jurisprudence.
Today you are facing serious and demanding challenges in updating the regulatory framework and law enforcement practice, combating corruption, improving the legal culture in society and providing qualified legal assistance. Naturally, our most sincere gratitude and appreciation go out to our legal veterans, who are experienced, competent, and dedicated specialists and mentors to the younger generation of lawyers.”
