Italy: Revolt of the trainee lawyers

By DR. RODOLFO DOLCE | 05.02.2021

Italy does not know the training to become a one-size-fits-all lawyer; those who successfully passed the university exam in law have to pass the so-called bar exam after a several-year internship with a lawyer. Due to Corona, there have been peculiarities in the final oral exam in 2020; candidates initially had to wait eight months for the results of their exams written in December 2019 and only 35% of candidates passed the written exam. The examination boards only met online, justifications were not provided - as is, however, customary in Italy.

The association of trainee lawyers Aipavv has reported the precarious situation to the President of the Republic. Among other things, it is suspected that the lawyers on the examination boards fail the examinations if only to keep future competition at bay. Honi soit qui mal y pense.
