Labour market access

 On 13 July 2010, Bulgaria issued an amendment to its Bar Act in the 53rd issue of its State Gazette. With the new provisions, EU lawyers with legal qualifications from other EU Member States are now free to become lawyers in Bulgaria as well.
The country introduced this measure after the EU started an infringement procedure against Bulgaria in 2009 for not enforcing the EU directive 98/5.
