The project is being carried out by scientists employed at Polish and German universities and in cooperation with the Pomeranian Bar Association in Gdańsk and the Bar Association in Frankfurt.

- 'The project aims to conduct scientific research within the framework of a Polish-German partnership, the subject of which will be the analysis of the legal conditions for legal professions in Polish and German legal reality. The focus of the research will be on the reconstruction of the axiological basis of the regulations governing the legal professions and in particular the profession of a barrister in Germany, and the profession of a barrister and legal adviser in Poland. The research project will also cover the issue of the tasks of the professional self-governments as set out in the Constitution. Moreover, research will focus on the issue of professional ethics and norms constituting the source of enforcing professional liability,' says dr Hanna Wolska from the Department of Public Economic Law and Environmental Protection at the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Gdańsk.

The project manager on the Polish side is dr Michał Biliński of the Faculty of Law and Administration of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. The members on the German side are: Julia Lefèvre, dr Magdalena Jaś-Nowopolska and Maximilian Roth from the Justus Liebig University in Gießen.

The first research results will be made public in the third quarter of this year.
