Exercise of the profession as a lawyer in the civil service


  • who are used as judges or civil servants without being appointed for life,
  • who are called into the employment of a soldier on a temporary period, or
  • who are temporarily employed in the public sector,

may not pursue their profession as a lawyer, unless they carry out the tasks assigned to them on a voluntary basis.

The competent body may, on request, appoint a representative of the public service lawyer or allow him to practise the profession himself if it does not jeopardise the interests of the administration of justice.
