The Committee was established to unite the community of professionals in the field of compliance and ethics, exchange knowledge and experience, improve national legislation governing certain aspects of compliance, improve the integrity and ethics of doing business.
The legal community of Ukraine is facing some oversaturation of demand for legal services. Along with the constant interest of young people in obtaining legal education, every year there is a tendencyin narrowing the opportunities for their further successful career and decent pay. At the same time, the global legal market is showing increasing interest in building alternative careers in compliance and business ethics, including corporate governance, GRC, risk management, and sustainability. Professional lawyers have the full opportunity to use their knowledge of the law, understanding of the principles of government and regulatory bodies, experience in interpreting and drafting legislation to successfully build an alternative career.

- organization of discussions with the participation of lawyers, compliance specialists, government officials, scientists;
