Statement by The Law Society of Jersey on Ukraine

“The Law Society of Jersey is appalled and saddened at the events in Ukraine, following the military invasion of the country by Russia, which indisputably violates international law.  This unprovoked act of aggression has placed millions of Ukrainian civilians on the front line of conflict, and threatens to trigger a humanitarian crisis across Europe. 

The Law Society of Jersey is founded on the principle of encouraging and promoting the upholding of the rule of law, and we stand together with the international legal community in condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.”
