Abstract. The present paper introduces results from a survey carried out among judges, attorneys, prosecutors, notaries, enforcement officers, law professors and law students. Its main aim was to identify whether the legal professions dealt appropriately with information about the behaviour of lawyers apparent from the leaked Threema communication between Marian Kočner and several representatives of the justice system. Secondly, the survey strived to determine what could have made lawyers’ response to the Threema scandal more appropriate and how the behaviour described in Threema could have been prevented. The third important aim of the survey was to ascertain how to strengthen the integrity of the legal professions. The paper provides mostly descriptive information about the results of the survey.

Keywords: professional ethics, judicial integrity, trust in the justice system, crisis of legal profession
