Control of knowledge

Any mark equal to or higher than 12 in the written tests of the first session is retained for the second session unless the candidate decides otherwise in writing to the Registrar's Office within 8 days of the announcement of the results.
Candidates who are deferred to the first session following the oral tests are only questioned in the second session in those subjects for which they have obtained a mark lower than 12/20. The minimum mark of 12/20 is only maintained if the student has taken all the oral tests.
Any student may waive this provision and retake the test.
Candidates for the Certificate of Legal Ability register twice a year.
The days, times and places of the tests (written and oral) are posted on the website.
For each written test, candidates are offered three subjects of a theoretical nature.
They must deal with two of them.
Only candidates who have obtained an average in the written tests are authorised to take the oral tests.
Admission or deferment is pronounced after deliberation by the jury.
No appeal is admissible against these decisions.
No one may take the second registration if he or she has not passed the first year examination.
The Certificate of Legal Capacity is awarded after the successful completion of the second examination.
