Attorney in law - yes/no?


Pita

Hi all,
I am not qualified in my country as an attorney in law and I moved abroad to Germany. I would like to know if I should give a preference and finish my qualification in my home country and be in a bar (in my home country). Or would I be able to work as a specialized lawyer (not as an attorney, obviously) in Germany - e.g. in a company? I am not planning to get into German bar.
Thank you.

Hello Pita,
I recommend to get a licence in your home country. You never know when you will return and after all it states your theoretical and practical expertise in your field of law.
If you hold of foreign legal degree and wish to provide legal services on the territory of a foreign law domestically, there is the possibility to apply for registration as a legal service at the local county or district court presidents. Prerequisite for such registration are particular personal suitability and reliability, theoretical and practical expertise in the relevant foreign law as well as the existence of a professional liability insurance, § 12 para. 1 Legal Services Act (RDG).
