Minister Naomi Long MLA Champions Rule of Law Pledge

In a significant move for Northern Ireland’s legal community, Minister of Justice Naomi Long MLA has stepped up as the first elected representative to pledge support for “The Pledge to Uphold the Rule of Law.” Spearheaded by the Law Society of Northern Ireland, this initiative aims to combat unfair attacks on solicitors and reinforce respect for legal professionals.

The Pledge underscores six key principles: Independence, Responsibility, Fairness, Balance and impartiality, Transparency, and Accuracy. By committing to these principles, signatories affirm their dedication to upholding the Rule of Law and supporting the independence of the legal profession and judiciary.

Minister Long’s endorsement sets a positive precedent, emphasising her commitment to fostering a fair and just society where the law is respected. Her support is a significant step forward in ensuring that solicitors can carry out their duties without undue criticism or interference. A very important step to be taken for solicitors and legal professionals today!

As other MLAs and political parties are encouraged to join in, this initiative holds promise for rebuilding trust in the legal system and promoting a culture of mutual respect and integrity.
