Examination by lawyer, deadline for practice extended to January. The Minister of Justice, Marta Cartabia, has signed a ministerial decree that expands the audience of practicing lawyers admitted to participate in the next session of the state exam for the qualification to practice forensics. Trainee lawyers who will complete the forensic internship by 6 January 2022 will be able to apply for admission to the exam by the deadline of January 7, 2022. The ministerial decree, meeting the requests of the practitioners, extends the deadline for the completed practice initially scheduled for November 10, 2021. The tests will begin on February 21, 2022. The extension of the deadline for the completed practice, traditionally set on November 10 of each year, is motivated by the prolongation of the current health emergency, for which the tests ‘exam will begin in February and not in December as usually happens. The publication of the ministerial decree in the Official Gazette, 4th series’ competitions and exams’, is scheduled for next Tuesday. The ministry’s online platform for submitting applications has been updated with a new deadline for completing the application.
