The Bar in the mechanism of protection of rights and freedoms of a person and citizen is one of the means for self-restriction of state power through the creation and active functioning of an independent human rights institution that is an active actor in the implementation process of the main constitutional function of the state-the realization and protection of human and civil rights and freedoms. The constitutional and legal status of legal profession allows it to actively ensure the rights of not only each person, but also of the entire civil society, to effectively implement the human rights function of the state by ensuring proper interaction in the activities of government bodies and civil society. Being an active participant in the law enforcement mechanism, occupying an independent place in the mechanism of justice, a legal profession performs (should perform) an important function of public control in this area.
