Regional Dialogue signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Uzbek Chamber of Lawyers on Friday, July 3, 2015. This is the first Memorandum that Uzbek Chamber of Lawyers signed with any international organization so far. The documents, prepared in Uzbek, Russian and English, were signed by Chairman Ravshan Akhmedov on behalf of the Uzbek Chamber of Lawyers and by Director Mjusa Sever on behalf of Regional Dialogue. The signing ceremony took place at the beautiful new headquarters of Uzbek Chamber of Lawyers, where Regional Dialogue also conducted a two days' session with the experts from US Bar and EU Association of Advocates in May. Regional Dialogue welcomes a more proactive cooperation of Uzbek lawyers and their Chamber with their American and European colleagues and hopes that other organizations and donors will also raise their support to strengthening the role, integrity and quality of Uzbek defence lawyers.
