Bill on education requirements for would-be prosecutors reaches State Duma
MOSCOW, May 22 (RAPSI) – A bill specifying education attainment requirements for prosecutors’ office candidates has been submitted to Russia’s State Duma. The document has been published on the official website of the parliament’s lower house.
Currently, would-be prosecutors must have higher legal education without its level detection.
However, prosecutors’ work is notable for enhanced responsibility.
The proposed initiative therefore envisages that publicly accredited higher legal education including the degrees of specialist or master coupled with law baccalaureate would be set as an obligatory requirement to candidates for the post of prosecutor.
The bill’s adoption will uniform approaches to employment issues in the Russian government jobs, an explanatory note to the draft law reads.
