Take a second state legal examination


With the acceptance of the second state legal examination, your Legal Preparatory Service ends. With successful passing of the examination, you acquire the qualification to become a judge and are entitled to use the designation "Assessor" or "Assessorin".

The examination consists of 8 supervisory tasks with a duration of 5 hours and an oral examination. After successful completion of the examination, a certificate is issued by the State Judicial Examination Office.

In Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony-Anhalt is currently the only federal state to be able to produce the written supervision work on a laptop.

You are a law clerk or law student and would like to find out about the course of the second state examination? In this case, you can find information here.

Admission to the examination is automatically carried out after successful passage of the training stations, so that a separate application for admission is not necessary.

Each subject is summoned by the State Judicial Examination Office to carry out the supervisory work. The supervision work is carried out in the 20th month of training in a period of 2 weeks. After the work has been carried out, the test subject completes the voting station of the preparatory service, while the supervisory work is evaluated by 2 examiners. Thereafter, a summons for the examination takes place, which takes place at the beginning of the 25th month of training. This consists of a file presentation, and 5 examination interviews (civil law, criminal law, public law, lawyer and focus). When the exam is passed, the legal preparation service is completed.

The State Judicial Examination Office in the Ministry of Justice and Equality of the State of Saxony-Anhalt answers individual questions about the examination procedure.
