Abstract

El legislador de 1985 configuró, con una magnífica intención pero con una escasa técnica jurídica, el marco sancionador disciplinario para los abogados que intervinieren en pleitos o causas. De esta manera se articula en los preceptos 552 y ss. de la LOPJ un sistema específico para corregir a los letrados diferentes conductas hipotéticamente irreverentes en el ejercicio de su profesión ante la Administración de Justicia. No obstante, a la criticable técnica jurídica, en algunos casos excesivamente imprecisa, se le debe añadir la modulación que la doctrina constitucional ha realizado desde antaño, privando, inexplicablemente y en reiteradas ocasiones, de determinadas garantías constitucionales al procedimiento disciplinario referido. Consecuentemente, el papel protagonista y, en algunas ocasiones antagónico, del abogado frente a la Administración de Justicia, hace indispensable el análisis y crítica de este régimen sancionador al objeto de su reflexión, estudio y mejora.

In 1985 the legislator set, with a great purpose but little legal technique, the disciplinary sanctions framework for lawyers to be involved in lawsuits or causes. Thus, the precepts 552 and ss. of the LOPJ articulated a specific system to correct diverse behaviors hypothetically irreverent detected in lawyers when exercising his profession before the Administration of Justice. Nevertheless, it must be added to the questionable legal practice, occasionally too imprecise, the modulation made since ancient times by the constitutional doctrine. This has been inexplicably and repeatedly depriving the referred disciplinary procedure of certain constitutional guarantees. Consequently, the main role of lawyers with respect to the Administration of Justice, occasionally antagonistic, makes essential the critical analysis of this penalty system in order to provide an adequate reflection, study and improvement.
