Lawyers voice opposition against new regulations from Supreme Court President

 

The Lawyers Council of Thailand (LCT) has submitted a petition to the Office of the Administrative Court accusing new regulations by the Supreme Court President of limiting their rights to conduct juvenile and family-related cases.

A group of 108 lawyers, led by LCT Vice-president Sawai Jitpian (ไสว จิตเพียร), claimed that the new regulations limit the legal power of lawyers in representing their clients in the court of law as they will be required, from now on, to complete the annual training session for juvenile and family-related cases, the very course which has been taken on a yearly basis by all lawyers.

Mr.Sawai stated that based on the new regulations, Lawyers are also required to pass a test and to be approved by the Central Juvenile and Family Court before being able take part in criminal cases, the move which was deemed by many as unnecessary and could be considered a violation to the current Attorney Act.

The group has also urged other regional LCT presidents to join to movement and to provide support for changes of such regulations.
