State Attorney’s Office Tips
The recent Decree n. 70 of the Ministry of Justice, published in the G.U. of May 19, 2016, provided for some news for the conduct of the forensic practice by aspiring lawyers.
During the course of the forensic practice, the performance of public or private subordinate work is now admissible, but forensic practice must take place with diligence, diligence, confidentiality and in compliance with the rules of professional ethics.
Furthermore, practicing lawyers can perform the first semester of forensic practice while they are attending the last university year and a successor semester in another European Union state.
It is always possible to carry out partial legal practice in the Municipality, the State Attorney’s Office and public bodies such as INPS, but only for a maximum of 12 months.
Compulsory attendance at professional training and refresher courses during the course of the forensic practice is fundamental.
the aspiring lawyer is faced with a choice: to remain a practicing lawyer or to apply for enrollment in the Registered Practitioner Register.
Enrollment in the Registered Practitioners Register obviously has a cost that varies according to the order of belonging and allows the young aspiring lawyer to be able to take legal action without the need to have his own dominus but only in certain types of cases.
How to become a lawyer: the professional qualification exam
Once the forensic practice is finished, it will be necessary to face the State examination to obtain the qualification to practice the legal profession.
For the 2016 session, the state exam is the same as in previous years and consists of taking three written and one oral tests.
The three written tests consist of the drafting of two legal opinions on matters governed by the civil code and the penal code and of a judicial document on a question chosen from the three proposed in the field of private law, criminal law and administrative law.
The oral test consists of an interview of about an hour before a commission of jurists, university professors, lawyers or magistrates where the writing will be discussed and some questions will have to be answered on the five subjects chosen by the aspiring lawyer.
