Mobilization for the defense of the professional secrecy of the lawyers of Soissons and Château-Thierry

The lawyers of the bar of Soissons will gather this Tuesday, November 16, at 1:30 p.m., on the steps of the courthouse, in protest against a text of the bill “for confidence in the judicial institution” adopted in a joint committee on 21 october. According to them, this text would render professional secrecy between the lawyer and his client unenforceable under certain conditions. They see it as a “retreat of the rule of law” and an attack on democracy.

In a letter dated Friday, November 12, the president of the bar of Soissons, Xavier Lefèvre, invites the mayor of Soissons to join them on Tuesday, in front of the court, the day of the examination of the text in the National Assembly. The lawyers are asking for an amendment to this text of the law.
