Pekarskiy) journalism and law are very closely connected. Therefore a lot was spoken about cooperation of these two spheres.
There also were some words on their confrontations too, as a few of those happened in Valeriy Bakshin’s broad practice. The conclusion of the speech was that lawyers and journalists do not have to quarrel – “we’d better unite”.
