The Council of State recently ruled again implementing a regulation included in the Turkish Bar Association's Code of Practice which states that attorneys should not wear headscarves while practicing law and yesterday, for a historical first in Turkey, attorney Şule Dağlı attended a hearing as a co-plaintiff, wearing a headscarf.
The judge overseeing the hearing, which was held at the Kadıköy 2nd Court of First Instance, included the statement, "The joint attorney was seen wearing a headscarf" in the proceedings report. When asked to comment on the situation, attorney Şule Dağlı reminded of the recent Council of State ruling on file number 2012/5257 to halt the implementation of Article 20 which stipulates lawyers should not wear headscarves while practicing law and said "It is for this reason that I am attended the hearing wearing a headscarf."
Dağlı went on to explain to the press, "The judge said they were uninformed of the issue and had not received a written statement announcing the ruling and would therefore be reporting the incident. The report is supposedly going to be sent to the bar association," stated Dağlı.
