Rules and regulations regarding lawyers

The activities of lawyers are governed by several rules and regulations.

The statutory rules are mainly found in the Swedish Code of Judicial Procedure, but provisions on lawyers can additionally be found in a few other statutes.

The Bar Association’s own rules are found in the Association’s Charter, the Code of Conduct and in the Accounting Regulations. The Code of Conduct for European Lawyers is applicable to members’ cross-border activities.

Documents containing most of these rules and regulations are found in the menu to the left.
