The article investigates the expediency of checking the psychological readiness of a person to independently engage in the practice of law at the stage of access to the profession, as a guarantee of compliance with the high ethical principles of the profession in the future. In this context, the problematic aspects of the procedure for obtaining the status of an attorney are investigated and directions for its improvement are proposed. The article argues for the need to check the psychological and moral and ethical qualities of a person who has expressed a desire to practice law. Special attention is paid to the issue of improving the procedure for qualification assessment of persons applying for the status of an attorney, with the possibility of identifying the psychological and moral and ethical qualities of applicants. The problem of the legislative lack of a mechanism for checking the individual psychological qualities of people who intend to become an attorney is pointed out, which would indicate their professional and psychological readiness to practice law. Suggestions are made to eliminate the problem by improving the norms of the current legislation on the bar and advocacy using positive foreign experience.
