The examination is divided into three parts. The first part is the knowledge test, which will assess you on your ability to understand and answer legal questions. In this section you will have to apply concepts from case studies, written documents, and court rulings. The second part is the interpretation test, which will assess whether you grasp the legal principles laid out in the questions. Finally, and most importantly, the third and last part of the examination will measure your practical abilities to answer the questions.
I believe that people have a misconception about the manner in which the examinations are taken. Often, when candidates apply for admission to a bar examination in one country, they are automatically sent to another country’s equivalent. This often leads to candidates not answering questions accurately, or being unable to grasp concepts laid out in the questions. The fact is that all questions on a German bar examination are based on the Law of the European Union. This means that if you understand the Law of the EU, you will be able to answer German questions.
There are a few differences between the European Law Club examination and the Second State Examination in Germany. One of these differences is that while applicants may apply to the LSSA to take their examination in Germany, they cannot apply directly to the LSSA for examination in Germany. This is different from the ELCs of many countries. Applicants must first take an approved training program that is recognized by the LSSA in order to be eligible to sit for the examination. Then they must complete the training and pass the exam in order to be admitted to the LSSA as a legal practitioner.
In addition to being accepted to take the examination for lawyers, you must also be admitted to a law school in Germany before you can register to take the second state examination. Law schools in Germany do not offer the LSSA examinations but will accept you if they do. Not only will law schools accept those who have already taken and passed the LSSA examination in Germany, they will also accept students who have taken and passed the American bar examination for lawyers. It is important to note that if you have a LSSA examination from another country, you will need to provide proof that you have received training and passed it within the time frame specified by the LSSA. Proof of training will help the LSSA determine whether or not you are an appropriate candidate for the second state examination in Germany.
Once you have been accepted to a law school in Germany, you will be able to register for the second state examination. The first examination that you take as a legal practitioner in Germany is the Multererpruegstag, which is an examination that is administered by the Federal Tax Agency. This examination is not aligned with any particular legal practice. The second examination that you take as a legal practitioner in Germany is the Baerhestag, which is administered by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Justice.
You will take the second state examination after you have passed the first. Once you have been licensed in Germany, the state will provide you with a registration card. This card will allow you to practice law in Germany. Although there is no requirement for you to practice as a lawyer in Germany once you have earned your license, many individuals move on to become attorneys general in the state of Germany.
There are some aspects of the second state examination in Germany that you must consider carefully. If you are under the age of 21, you will need parental consent for any medical exam that you take as part of your second state examination in Germany. In addition, if you are required to take the Multererpruegstag, you will only be permitted to take one per year. If you wish to take the second state examination in Germany, you should contact your provincial Bar Association as soon as possible.
