2.1Relationship with the Court

In all dealings with the Court, any judge of the Court or any member of the staff of the Registry, a Representative shall act respectfully and courteously and - based on sufficient education on the law and Rules governing the Court and proceedings before the Court - competently, and shall do everything possible to uphold the good reputation of his or her respective professional association.

Note: While the term “competently” is not and cannot be intended to impose any formal requirement for Continuing Professional Education (CPE), it seems important for enabling the Court to reach the objective of ensuring decisions of the highest quality (see Preamble of RoP) that Representatives inform themselves sufficiently about the new system and applicable law to prepare their cases correspondingly.
