Regulator(s) of Admission
Law graduates seeking to become independent advocates (licensed to appear in court) must be a member of the YBA. Law on Advocacy specifices that a three-year training course must be completed, but this seldom occurs. Instead, many law graduates can apply to the YBA for placement at a lawyer's office. After completion, without final exam, trainees can become practicing lawyers. However, some judges permitt nonlicensed shari'a agents to appear before the court, as well as husbands or close family members.
