The Warsaw Bar Association took 1st place in the 2nd edition of the competition of the National Council of Legal Advisers (KRRP) for the best foreign projects of the regional bar associations.
The LawBay mobile app project of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Warsaw Bar Association won 1st place and a prize of PLN 20,000 in the KRRP competition.
LawBay is a project for preparing a mobile app for smartphones which will allow users to track legal workshops, conferences and integration events on a current basis in Poland and abroad (mainly EU countries). Under the project, the app can be downloaded by anyone who is interested, while content can be added by all the Polish bar associations, international legal organizations, and foreign bar associations which have a cooperation agreement in place with the Warsaw Bar Association or other regional bar associations. The app will initially comprise three sections: workshops, conference, and integration events.
Second place in the competition for best foreign projects was won by the Wrocław Bar Association for its project “Appearing before the court: Art or craft?” and 3rd place by the Lublin Bar Association for the project “Law without borders.” A total of nine applications that met the formal criteria for the competition were submitted to KRRP. In the 1st edition of the competition, held in 2014, the Warsaw Bar Association took 2nd place.
