Law Society statement on Ukraine
The Law Society of Northern Ireland unreservedly condemns the invasion
of the Independent Republic of Ukraine by the armed forces of the Russian
Federation and calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities and the
withdrawal of Russian forces from the territory of Ukraine.
In a statement issued on Thursday morning, the Society’s President,
Brigid Napier, said that “The invasion of Ukraine is a flagrant violation of
international law and will cause unpardonable suffering to the civilian
population and give rise to a humanitarian crisis”.
The Law Society of Northern Ireland will be publishing a list of
Solicitors who have offered to provide free legal help for Ukraine nationals
currently living in Northern Ireland who are trying to bring family members out
of harm’s way.
