How To Become A Lawyer?


Edited By Izabela Krasnicka and Magdalena Perkowska

The present publication collects the contributions of the colloquium «How to Become a Lawyer in Europe», which took place on June 4, 2010 in Andorra la Vella – within the frame-work of the 15th annual meeting of the representatives of the Network of European Universities in Legal Studies.
We gathered articles concerning not only many European countries but also the United States and a special contribution is made to the system in California (USA). Each part is a unique guide through internal regulations leading to different legal professions. The articles present the academic education system in the field of law and also special requirements and professional exams giving the right/permission to perform legal professions. The reader will see the differences and similarities especially in the European systems of the presented countries.

Preface The creation of European Higher Education Area (EHEA) has been a major advance in promoting convergence in European higher educa- tion on our continent, thus making different university systems more comparable and transparent. The EHEA establishes mechanisms that makes the academic recognition of university degrees easier among European countries and promotes the mobility of students from differ- ent universities in Europe. The university degree alone does not guarantee the exercise of certain professions that are regulated in the different states, as in the case of lawyers. For these professions the regulations of diverse Euro- pean states present very different conditions. In this respect, the organization of the symposium “How to Be- come a Lawyer” (Andorra la Vella, June 4th) by the Réseau européen de cooperation universitaire en Sciences juridiques (Network of Euro- pean Universities in Legal Studies) has been very propitious in high- lighting, with academic precision, the diversity of requirements of the various European states. The University of Andorra and the University of Paris Ouest- Nanterre-La Défense have collaborated in publishing a compilation of the presentations of the colloquium, which show the diversity and complexity of Europe, but at the same time will surely contribute to the understanding of the different requirements needed to become a lawyer.
