5.12.2018

The Federation of European Bars (FBE) celebrates the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed in Paris on this day in 1948.

The FBE is proud to defend human rights, access to justice and the rule of law. Our members are aware of the importance of these strong values when in so many parts of the world there is no equality before the law, access to justice is limited to those who have resources, human rights are violated and the rule of law is threatened.

The role of the member bars of the Federation is to support lawyers in defending these values is under threat and we stand together united in our support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and all those who defend human rights, access to justice and the rule of law.
