Abstract: When eventually the new Laws of Organization and Civil Procedure were promulgated (Ordinance No. IV of 1854) the qualifications set out at Sections 101 to 103 were the following: (a) Warrant from the Governor; (b) Oaths of Allegiance and Office; (c) good conduct and good morals; (d) a native born British .subject; (e) possession of a Lyceum and University certificate of a good· knowledge of arithmetic and handwriting, and of having, after being admitted to the University, attended therein the lectures prescribed for legal procurators; (f) practice for a period of not less than a year with a practising advocate; (g) examination by two judges and certification by them as being in possession of the above qualifications and comptent to act as a legal procurator. The present Code contains no substantial divergences from the above, saving that the qualification at (c) has been adequately tightened in the sense that mere attendance at University lectures is not enough, but the applicant must be approved by the examining board of the Faculty of Law. This amendment was made by Ordinance No. IX of 1886. The qualification at (d) has been amended by the condition that the period of practice must be subsequent to the passing of the examination mentioned at (c). Approval in this examination entitles the successful candidate to a University diploma.
