English solicitor to practice in Switzerland

Hello,

I'm an English trained solicitor specialising in family law (3 years experience). I have recently moved to the Canton de Vaud with my partner.

I've been told that to practice as an avocate in Switzerland I would need to take a degree in swiss law.

Anyone have any experience/understanding of this?

Many thanks,

Art. 27-33 of the Swiss law on Solicitors may provide useful information (available in German/French/Italian):

I don't think that is true. In Aargau you go on a registered foreign lawyers list at the court for 2 years and then you can practice, without retraining.
