Ms. Lyudmila Opryshko, attorney and senior lawyer at Konnov & Sozanovsky presented her speech at the seminar «Mass media and judicial bodies», which was organized by the US Agency on International Development (USAID) within the framework of a project «Ukraine: The Supremacy of Law» and took place on February 1, 2007 in the city of Kharkov.
The core idea of this project is to contribute to reforming of the judicial system, in particular, to increase transparency and accountability of judicial bodies. The reason for carrying out these educational and instructive activities for journalists is the urgent need for an increase in the level of awareness of our society on current legal and judicial reforms.
Ms. Lyudmila Opryshko while processing with her three speeches brought the light into the problems of litigation terminology and also into the discovering of informational resources. Lyudmila, using concrete examples from her litigation practice, demonstrated the meaning and the role of pre-publishing legal expertise of journalists' materials.
