Attorneys-at-law are obligated to train themselves

The mandatory continuing education guidelines for attorneys-at-law specify that each attorney must spend a minimum of 18 hours on personal professional development per year. The purpose of the continuing education obligation is to ensure that attorneys always have access to the latest information on developments in the field and the quality criteria for their activities. Our tasks also include supervision of compliance with the continuing education obligation in the manner required by law.

Legal, advocacy-related and professional ethics training is eligible for the continuing education obligation, along with work-related language studies and research, teaching or publishing in the field of law. Drawing up jurisprudential statements or statements on law drafting can also be counted against the obligation. The fulfilment of the continuing education obligation is monitored by the independent Disciplinary Board operating in conjunction with the Finnish Bar Association.
