Law on judges and prosecutors takes effect in Turkey
Turkish parliament adopted the law early Saturday.

According to the new law, the number of people, who graduate from faculties other than schools of law and want to become judicial judges, is limited with 20 percent of people who will be nominated and accepted for this position.

On the other hand, lawyers who work for five years and who are below 35 can also become a judge or a prosecutor after they take a test -- prepared by the Student Selection & Placement Center (OSYM) -- and interview with a Justice Ministry board consisting of seven people.

The law also paves the way for people who failed the written test to become administrative judges on October 15th, 2006. According to the newly-adopted law, these people can interview with the Justice Ministry again and become judges if they succeed.
