Today, Monday, 13 May, the Kosovo Specialist Chambers (KSC) added additional names to the Lists of Counsel. Counsel who have been admitted to those Lists are eligible to appear before the KSC to represent suspects, accused, a group of victims or any other person who is entitled to legal representation in accordance with the Law on the Kosovo Specialist Chambers and the Directive on Counsel. The public Lists contain the names of 150 legal practitioners from Kosovo, Serbia and a number of other countries. Counsel can choose whether they want their names publicly mentioned on the website of the KSC.
This is the third round of announcements. The public Lists of Counsel are published here.
Since November 2017, when the process started, the Defence Office and the Victims’ Participation Office have received numerous applications. The review of applications and the process of admission of Counsel is ongoing. Therefore, the Lists of Counsel will be continuously updated and more applicants will be admitted as the review process continues. Thus, the process will remain open.
