In its position of 11 September 2015, the CCBE “recognises that Bars and Law Societies must ensure that they comply with their EU obligation and seeks to ensure that Bars and Law Societies consider, and properly assess, applications from semi-qualified candidates who wish to start or continue their legal training outside their home jurisdictions. The CCBE notes that such qualifications should be assessed “having regard to the nature and duration of the studies and practical training” (Morgenbesser §§67-68)”. Furthermore, the CCBE “notes that one of the recent amendments to Directive 2005/36/EC on the recognition of Professional Qualifications, by Directive 2013/55/EU, introduced the notion that a ‘professional traineeship’ required for access to a regulated profession carried out in one Member State, access to which could have been facilitated by the Morgenbesser case law, must be recognised by a relevant Competent Authority in another Member State”.
