IBA

The International Bar Association (IBA), founded in 1947, is a bar association of international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies.

The IBA currently has a membership of more than 80,000 individual lawyers and 190 bar associations and law societies. Its global headquarters are located in London, England, and it has regional offices in Washington, D.C., United States, Seoul, South Korea and São Paulo, Brazil.

UNCRC

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (commonly abbreviated as the CRC or UNCRC) is a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. The Convention defines a child as any human being under the age of eighteen unless the age of majority is attained earlier under national legislation.

Nations that ratify this convention are bound to it by international law. Compliance is monitored by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, which is composed of members from countries around the world. Once a year, the Committee submits a report to the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, which also hears a statement from the CRC Chair, and the Assembly adopts a Resolution on the Rights of the Child.[5]

COLE

COLE is a neutral organisation that uses ethical principals to govern how ethical guidelines are followed.  It is the only 100% neutral organisations regarding Legal Ethics in Europe whom both follow IBA and UNCRC.

COLE is an organisation that is based upon strengthening ethical behaviour. COLE is doing that by exposing unethical behaviour regarding the legal process.

COLE has 41 different websites in different countries.

Advokatnytt

Advokatnytt is the local website for COLE in Norway.

Blacklisted lawyers

We have a strict policy when it comes to blacklisted lawyers. A blacklisted lawyer needs to apply to these four statements.

  1. Been convicted for criminal activity, or by a verdict in bar associations/law societies or “Zwijgen is instemmen” regarding COLE or its partners.

  2. They refuse to follow ethical procedures stated by IBA.

  3. They refuse to follow The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (commonly abbreviated as the CRC or UNCRC) is a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children.

Blacklisted lawyers can be removed from the list easily. They then need to state that they will follow UNCRC and IBA’s rules and that they will go through their own, or/and their company’s ethical behaviour regarding children

The list will be heavily distributed in social media, connecting site, to potential and existing customers, law students at universities, press etc. If you are listed – we strongly suggest that you plead to sign

We strongly recommend you to not use lawyers who are on the Blacklist. Companies who use blacklisted lawyers can also be Blacklisted due to the fact that they indirectly can be supporting unnecessary harm to children in a hurtful situation.
