Spanish lawyers (abogados) are regulated in their professional practice by the General Rules for Lawyers (Estatuto General de la Abogacía Española) and the Spanish Lawyers Code of Conduct (Código Deontológico de la Abogacía Española) which is based on the European Code Of Conduct (Código Deontológico Europeo). Apart from the above, Spanish Lawyers (abogados) are subject to other provisions such as the Organic Law of the Judicial Power (Ley Orgánica del Poder Judicial). They are also subject to provisions which may be issued from time to time by the local bar association of the bar they practice at. In Madrid, such relevant provisions are, among others, the Code Governing Publicity of Lawyers of the Madrid Bar Association (Código Regulador de la Publicidad de los Abogados del Colegio de Madrid), and the Disciplinary Regulation (Reglamento del Procedimiento Disciplinario). All of these rules also apply, mutatis mutandi, to any non-Spanish lawyers legally practising law in Spain.
In order to be allowed to practise law, Spanish lawyers (abogados) must be registered with the Bar Association of their local jurisdiction in Spain.
The regulatory provisions referred to above are available through any of the Spanish Bar Associations, including the Madrid Bar Association.
