RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Justice Walid Al-Samaani has issued 2,317 and renewed 1,082 law practice licenses in the past 12 months.
The ministry has said that it is focusing its efforts on vocational training as an essential part of the justice system, providing professional advice to safeguard people’s interests.
Inquiries about licensed lawyers can be made through a list of lawyers classified by name and city, as well as queries about the status of filed applications and other services, the ministry said.
Services for lawyers offered through the Najiz portal include applying for a law practice license and renewal of licenses.
A trainee lawyers’ service allows applicants to register and receive a “trainee lawyer identification certificate” electronically.
The portal also has a transfer service for lawyers and can issue new electronic “trainee lawyer identification certificates.”
