The Council of European Bars and Law Societies (CCBE) is recognised as the voice of the European legal profession representing, through its members, more than one million European lawyers.
CCBE membership includes the bars and law societies of 45 countries from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and the wider continent. The organisation consists of 32 full, three associate, and ten observer member countries (see Statutes for information on membership determination).
The CCBE represents European bars and law societies in their common interests before European and other international institutions. It regularly acts as a liaison between its members and the European institutions, international organisations, and other legal organisations around the world.
The regulation of the profession, the defence of the rule of law, human rights and democratic values are the most important missions of the CCBE. Areas of special concern include the right of access to justice, the digitisation of justice processes, the development of the rule of law, and the protection of the client through the promotion and defence of the core values of the profession.
