Chinese authorities have pledged to reform the country’s qualification system for those who want to enter the legal profession.

A statement jointly issued by the general offices of the Communist Party of China’s (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council on Sunday said the system will be improved to ensure those engaged in law professions are “faithful to the Party, the country, the people and the law”, reported Xinhua.

The current system requires specific exams for four professions, namely judges, prosecutors, lawyers and notaries, but the new system combines them into one single exam and extends it to more professions such as those that involve the imposition of restrictions on the rights of citizens and corporate bodies, or auxiliary positions in the justice system.

Those who enter the legal professions shall also receive a unified pre-service training, it added.
