Usage notesEdit

In Finland the use of asianajaja as a professional title is restricted to those who have demonstrated sufficient theoretical knowledge and practical experience to a Bar Association. However, at least in theory anybody is legally allowed to assist anyone in a court, in which case they may be called oikeudenkäyntiasiamies or oikeudenkäyntiavustaja. The title asianajaja can therefore be regarded as a quality badge. They are also tied to an ethical code, and may lose the title by a decision of the Bar Association.
