- having a higher legal education and work experience in the legal specialty after receiving a higher legal education for at least five years;
- who hold a master's degree in law, or are qualified as a researcher in law, or have a degree and/or title in the field of law.
- Giving the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Belarus the authority to exempt (individually) from passing the qualification exam persons who have merit in the field of jurisprudence.
