Part I of this Note discusses the right of establishment within the EEC and the difficulties facing foreign attorneys in their efforts to exercise their right of establishment. Part II will examine the reasons why directives advancing a lawyer's freedom of establishment have so far not been approved and will then evaluate three proposed solutions. Finally, Part III presents an alternative proposal to ensure a lawyer's freedom of establishment. This Note concludes that a directive which provides for simplified access requirements, is necessary to ensure foreign lawyers' competence and to place the foreign lawyer on an equal status with the national lawyer.
