Medals of Merit in the Legal Profession

On the other hand, Victoria Ortega awarded the Medals of Merit in the Legal Profession to the Jerez-born Manuel Ferrer and Alfredo Velloso.

The president of the General Council of Spanish Lawyers, Victoria Ortega, presided over the ceremony of awarding the Medal of Merit for Service to the Legal Profession to the lawyers Alfredo Velloso and Manuel Ferrer, from the Jerez de la Frontera Bar Association, on Friday 18 March.

Ortega stressed that the honorees have followed a common path: “Their profession has been based on training, sensitivity, and commitment.”

She also recalled the moment we are living through, in relation to the invasion in Ukraine, “the most difficult in Europe since the Second World War,” he said. For this reason, the 83 Bar Associations have mobilised to activate systems of free legal aid for the entire population displaced from Ukraine.

“Alongside this, we are also acting fundamentally in the areas that the Ukrainian legal profession itself has asked us for: in the possibility of direct economic aid and in seeking asylum for people who are displaced to Ukraine,” she added.

Finally, the president welcomed the fact that the new text of the Law on Procedural Efficiency includes the reconciliation of personal, family, and working life in the profession, which will mean “an advance both in co-responsibility and, in this way, in achieving a fairer society,” she said.

“In this sense, the Bar Association has launched an awareness campaign because what is not shown is not known, what is not known is not improved and what is not improved always gets worse,” she pointed out.
