It is an honour and a pleasure for me to address this multilateral meeting
here in Iceland which deals with the subject of the Legal Profession: Practising
in the 21st Century ? Which Lawyer for the Third Millenium.
The Legal Profession plays a fundamental role in every civil society .The
access to courts would be of little value for the common man without a
professional assistance from independent legal experts who seek redress for
their clients in a professional way.
In this country we have records mentioning such helpers for the past 1000
years or so, but these were originally wise and experienced persons who did
not have much schooling in the modern sense , but had gained their
experience from observing the procedures of the ancient courts and law
making assemblies which our ancestors established early in the history of our
nation. These helpers were not supposed to demand a fee for their services as
was the medieval custom in Europe and in one of our old sagas, the “Njals
saga” written in the 13th Century, there is an amusing anecdote of a wise man
who tried to hide the reward he had received from a client which he had
promised to represent before the highest court which assembled annually at
Thingvellir which was also the seat of the ancient Parliament until the end of
the eighteenth century.
