In his decision, the head of the Bar said that after perusal of the lawyering law, and since it is legally agreed that the new entrants are not registered in the treatment project until after the lapse of two years – as a minimum – and the transition to the lawyers’ roll before the courts of first instance.
And in terms of the position of those referred to disappear, and in particular those who have stopped working in the legal profession for several years, which compels them to apply for reinstatement and registration in the lawyers’ roll.
And since the position of the opponents of registration is consistent and parallel in its premises with the position of lawyers registered in the general roll and who may not participate in treatment except after their registration in the roll of the courts of first instance, which requires the lapse of at least two years.

In recognition that there is no error in what was spent on them prior to the issuance of this decision.
Third: Those in charge of the treatment project must empty the information of its participants and on the designated site – to abide by this decision since January 1, 2022.
Fourth: The Secretary General and the Treasurer shall follow up the implementation of this resolution, each within its jurisdiction.
