Foundation to Support Lawyers in Need

Warsaw's largest law firms have set up a foundation to support lawyers who have found themselves in trouble.

Twenty-six firms have declared they are ready to join the Right to Assistance foundation, which aims to provide help to lawyers who face a difficult financial situation as a result of a serious disease or accident and those who are trying to return to the profession. The foundation will also support people who want to study law and outstanding graduates who would like to receive further legal training but have financial or other problems, related to disability, for example.

The foundation will offer both one-off and long-term financial assistance in the form of grants to cover maintenance and education costs.


Banks to Disclose Road Offenders' Data
Police and other enforcement services will be given access to the personal data of people who have taken out a bank loan to buy a car, under a law change approved by the lower house of parliament Sept. 4.

Under the current system, road offenders driving a car bought on credit often go unpunished because police have no access to their data. The reason is that the owner of the car bought on credit is a bank and it is the bank's data that is entered in the national register of vehicles. Banks are bound by secrecy rules and refuse to disclose their clients' data to police.
