The bar is composed of advocates and trainee advocates in the territory of the Republic of Poland – http://www.nra.pl

The Bar is established to provide legal assistance, to cooperate in the protection of civil rights and freedoms and to cooperate in the shaping and application of the law.

The advocate’s profession consists in providing legal assistance, and in particular in providing legal advice, drawing up legal opinions, developing legal acts and appearing before courts and offices.  When performing their professional duties, advocates are subject only to the acts. The professional title “advocate” is protected by law.

The bar is organized on the basis of professional self-government. Self- government of advocates, created in accordance with art. 17 sec. 1 of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, represents advocates performing the profession of public trust and supervises the proper performance of their profession within the limits of public interest and for its protection. In addition, the self-government of advocates ensures proper preparation of advocate trainees to perform the profession of advocate.

The tasks of the professional self-government of the bar are:

1) creating conditions to perform statutory tasks of the bar,

2) representing the bar and protecting its rights,

3) supervising  the performance of the profession by advocates,

4) professional training of advocates and training of advocate trainees,

5) determining and promoting the principles of professional ethics and care for their observance,

6) managing the property of the self-government of advocates .

The profession of advocate can only be performed by a person entered on the list of advocates by the District Bar Association in which an advocate has their registered office. Entry on the list is obligatory.

There are 24 bar associations in Poland. The bar association is constituted by advocates and trainee advocates with a professional office in the chamber, the territorial scope of which is determined by the Supreme Bar Council, taking into account, in particular, the territorial division of the court administration.

The national body of the self- government of advocates is the Supreme Bar Council.

The basic legal act defining the model of the Polish bar is the Act of 26 May 1982, the Law on the Bar (Journal of Laws of 2018, item 184 of June 20, 2018).

The Polish Bar Sign comprising the Visual Identification System of the Polish Bar was chosen and approved by the Supreme Bar Council.
