Training

studieInterns on Sint Maarten obtain their internship report based on reports from their patron, which are examined by the Supervisory Council. The Bar on Sint Maarten has no compulsory professional course as yet, such as the one in the Netherlands. Neither is the Bar a public authority on Sint Maarten.

The Sint Maarten Bar, within the framework of the training, provides subjects such as introduction to the legal profession, behavioural law and practical science. Furthermore, lectures are given on a regular basis at the various jurisdictions. The Sint Maarten Bar strives for the introduction of a professional course and to also make this compulsory in the future.

In order to promote the mobility between the Netherlands and the former Antilles, the Bar wants to achieve that participants in the subjects initiated by the Sint Maarten Bar, get exemptions in the Netherlands.
