President of the Constitutional Court Arman Dilanyan participated in the official opening ceremony of the Assembly of Armenian Lawyers which was held in Yerevan on October 27-29, 2023.

The aim of the Assembly was to discuss issues related to involving the legal potential of the Diaspora in solving legal issues related to Armenia, Nagorno Karabakh and the Armenian Diaspora, creating a pan-Armenian platform for cooperation, as well as fostering connections and collaboration between between highly qualified Armenian legal scholars from different countries.

President of the Constitutional Court Arman Dilanyan welcomed the participants of the official opening ceremony of the Assembly, emphasizing the fact that for the first time, the best Armenian legal scholars from around the world came together in the homeland to develop joint legal solutions aimed at overcoming the challenges that Armenia, Artsakh and the Armenian Diaspora face, and share their own experience.

Arman Dilanyan noted the following: “I am confident that the proper, systemic, targeted, and competent teamwork of the legal community has great potential to solve our agenda items and steadfastly keep the legal "shoulder" of the Armenian state. The role and importance of our compatriots in the Diaspora is invaluable not only in the advancement of legal processes in the Armenian Diaspora, but there is also great potential in the Republic of Armenia in the aspect of legislative amendments, the reforms of the judiciary, the introduction of international leading experience in the improvement of the business environment, or in the sense of providing legal services in the already traditional areas.

Such events and professional discussions should eventually go beyond the logic of "conferences" and transform into stable working platforms pursuing specific goals, targets and results in specific areas".
