Process from Law School to practice:

A student is able to practice law on obtaining his or her degree. In order to obtain the title of “advocate”, the student must work for ca. five tears in an advocate office. Around 50% of students (the number vary strongly from year to year) clerk for a judge for 1-2 years before beginning work at an advocate’s office, or the courts, a prosecutor’s office or as company lawyers.
