Geneva’s Bar Association has appointed LALIVE partner Professor Jean-Paul Vulliéty as President of the Civil and Administrative Law Commission and counsel Sandrine Giroud as President of the Human Rights Commission.

The Geneva Bar Association is the professional association for lawyers practising in the Canton of Geneva and comprises more than 1,300 members from over 400 law firms. The association steers and participates in several initiatives, including drafting new laws, fostering the observance of human rights and procedural guarantees, the respect of fundamental individual liberties, as well as private rights in general. It also carries out ongoing training programmes for its members in all areas of law.

As President of the Civil and Administrative Law Commission, Jean Paul Vullièty will lead the Commissions’ activities which include examining bills on a cantonal and federal level in all civil and administrative law areas, throughout the year.

As for Sandrine Giroud, as President of the Human Rights Commission, she will steer a number of initiatives which aim to promote the observance and respect of human rights including legal observation missions and oral or written interpellations of authorities, as well as pro bono activities.

With these two appointments and LALIVE partner Alexander Troller‘s position on the Geneva Bar Council, the active engagement of LALIVE lawyers in the Geneva Bar Association is further strengthened.
