Take the second state examination in law


Your legal preparatory service ends with the acceptance of the second state examination in law. Upon successful passing of the examination, you acquire the qualification to become a judge and are entitled to use the designation "Assessor".


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 will be issued by the State Judicial Examination Office.

Saxony-Anhalt is currently the only federal state that has the opportunity to carry out the written supervision work on a laptop.

Admission to the examination takes place automatically after successful completion of the training stations, so that a separate application for admission is not necessary.

Each examinee is invited by the State Judicial Examination Office to prepare the supervisory work. The supervisory work is carried out in the 20th month of training in a period of 2 weeks. After completing the work, the examinee completes the elective station of the preparatory service, while the supervisory work is evaluated by 2 examiners. This is followed by a summons to the examination, 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). Upon passing the examination, the legal preparatory service is completed.

Individual questions about the examination procedure are answered by the State Judicial Examination Office in the Ministry of Justice and Equality of the State of Saxony-Anhalt.
