Changes in French initial training of avocats

December 14th, 2015 § 0 comments

french_flag_arc_de_triomphe4France is currently reviewing its entry route into the profession of avocat. The reforms are under discussion to alter its initial and exit exams that bracket the post university initial stage of training, and to shorten the whole initial training to a one year duration (from 18 months).

The Conseil National des Barreaux (CNB) has already published a Decision that streamlines the training course within its initial training and attempts to  re-orient it to become a very practical experience. The prescribed route though, is still within the Écoles d’Avocats, whose programmes will become more harmonised.
