European lawyer Apply for admission to the Bar

Service Description

If you are admitted as a European lawyer to the bar association responsible for your place of establishment, you may work in Germany under the professional title that you are also entitled to use in your country of origin. Without admission as a European lawyer to the respective bar association, this is not permitted in Germany. Admission to the Bar requires that the applicant is registered as a European lawyer with the competent authority in the country of origin.

If you are admitted as a European lawyer, you must prove regularly, usually every three years, that you are still admitted to the bar in your country of origin. Otherwise, your recognition as a European lawyer in Germany will be withdrawn again.

If other reasons arise why you are no longer allowed to practice as a lawyer, you are obliged to inform the competent bar association of these reasons.
