The task of enforcement agents is to execute enforcement actions such as enforcing court decisions, notarial documents executable in accordance with the law on notary etc.

Enforcment agents can not enforce decisions pertaining to family law issues and return of civil servants to work and other compensation.

Mediation

Mediation is a way of resolving disputes (dispute means the situation when one party claims that it is entitled to a right while the other party denies that right) in extra-judicial ways.

Mediation is the easiest way to resolve disagreements because it creates less expenses and is less formal than court proceedings. The mediation procedure is conducted by a mediator who is a person licensed by the Ministry of Justice.

The parties in a mediation procedure may reach a written agreement resolving the contest or dispute between them. That agreement must be signed the parties and the mediator is considered as a document which can be executed (enforced).

Mediation is regulated by the Law on Mediation

Advocacy is an independent profession exercised by lawyers and is concerned with providing legal aid to natural and legal persons for the protection of their freedoms, rights and interests. This legal aid mainly includes: giving legal advice, representing parties in court sessions, drafting various documents such as complaints, lawsuits, petitions, requests, proposals, etc.

The lawyer must be registered in the registry of lawyers at the Kosovo Chambers of Advocates and must be licensed to exercise the lawyer profession, and also before exercising the profession must give oath before the body of the Chambers.

Conditions for exercising advocacy are set forth in the Law on Bar specifically in Article 10, in which lawyers are required to have completed the bar exam.
