Annotation The article deals with the issues of legal status of the institute of the bar and its relationship with public authorities and civil society. On the basis of the study the author concludes that the bar cannot be related to civil society institutions. The bar can protect the interests of both state and civil society. The advocacy requires independence, not only of the state but also of the civil society. The bar must be defined in the legislation of Ukraine as an independent self-governing human rights institution to which the state assigns important functions to protect the rights and legitimate interests of a person. The author determines the legal value of the bar, its role and importance for building civil society and legal state in Ukraine.
