The Republic of Moldova – access to the legal profession

January 26th, 2017 § 0 comments

The CCBE has addressed a letter of concern to the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova, after being informed of a draft law on the reform of the Bar. The draft bill contains a provision that would allow members of parliament with more than 10 years experience in the field of law to become lawyers without having to sit the bar exam and without having to follow the otherwise mandatory traineeship for lawyers. The CCBE finds that such a provision is contrary to European and international standards and would have detrimental effects on the quality of legal services.

The letter refers to the CCBE Training Outcomes for European Lawyers. Find the letter here and the training outcomes here.
