MetadataShow full item record
The inherent attributes of the contemporary global society are multiple crisis which originate not only from economic problems or a lack of intellectual resources, but also (and primarily) from disregard of public values and accepted ethical standards. Lawyers bring significant contribution to the protection of these values as their main functions are: the assurance of the rule of law, justice, human rights and freedoms, legal security and legal certainty, the right to a fair trial and legal assistance etc. As these functions of lawyers are important not only for their clients but also for the whole society, it is important for future lawyers to develop their skills and understand their tasks in a wider - ethical - context. The purpose of the paper is to reveal some relevant aspects of value-based education of future lawyers, namely the need, challenges and possibilities of studies of legal ethics.
