The Supreme Court is the highest court of justice in the Netherlands. Not every attorney-at-law is qualified to litigate before the Supreme Court. Between 1876 and July 2012, this right was exclusively reserved to members of The Hague Bar.
On 1 July 2012 this ‘monopoly’ was removed and in its place a very strict quality assessment was introduced. Since that date, attorneys-at-law from across the Netherlands are authorised to litigate before the Supreme Court, on condition they have successfully passed the very tough admission exam.
