Twenty Years of the Riigikogu Legal Affairs Committee
This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the day the Riigikogu Legal Protection Committee started its work after the restoration of the independence of Estonia.
The Committee, which now bears the name Legal Affairs Committee, has made a significant contribution to the development of the state. The article reflects the most outstanding achievements of the Legal Affairs Committee and their most important activities on the basis of the minutes of the sittings of the Committee, the sources compiled by the Chancellery of the Riigikogu and the recollections of the former Chairmen of the Legal Affairs (Protection) Committee in the summer of 2012. Memories of the Chairmen give an idea of the workload and attitudes of the Committee.
