From now on, the Unified Register of Advocates of Ukraine will also contain information on the imposition of such a penalty as a warning, among other information about advocates. Previously, the URAU only indicated the suspension, termination or renewal of the right to practice law.

Relevant changes were made to the Procedure for Maintaining the Unified Register of Advocates of Ukraine. The decision of the BCU dated 11-12 August 2023 No. 69 was published on the UNBA website.

According to the amendments, if a warning is applied to an advocate, the UNBA will make appropriate changes to the URAU. The advocate's profile will reflect the grounds for the application of this penalty, as well as the name of the disciplinary body that made the decision, the name and date of such decision.

As a reminder, pursuant to Art. 35 of the Law «On the Bar and Practice of Law», one of the following disciplinary sanctions may be imposed on an advocate for committing a disciplinary offence:

1) a warning;

2) suspension of the right to practice law for a period of one month to one year;

3) deprivation of the right to practice law with subsequent exclusion from the UNR (for advocates of Ukraine) or exclusion from the UNR (for advocates of foreign countries).

The Unified Register of Advocates of Ukraine is an information and communication system that ensures the collection, accumulation, protection, accounting, display, processing of the register data and provision of the register information on the number and personnel of advocates of Ukraine and advocates of foreign states who, in accordance with the Law of Ukraine «On the Bar and Practice of Law», have acquired the right to practice law, on the organisational forms of practice of law chosen by advocates, as well as other information.
