Abstract

The new system of access to the Bar that is about to be implemented in Spain requires a mandatory period of 6 to 12 months (30 ECTS credits) of in-job training for law students willing to sit in the Bar exam. The provisions in the relevant Law and regulations leave substantial freedom to universities and partner institutions (law firms, legal departments at companies and public bodies) to set their own training programs, on the basis of a lawyer to lawyer mentoring system. This paper suggests some ideas to develop and implement an effective system of training and supervision of trainee lawyers.
