Summary/Abstract: The article contains text of the Project of Legal profession Act, which had been made in 1851, and dicussed at the State Council in 1854, and reveals circumstances under which it was created and why it did not come to power. The Project is of great relevance for comprehension of the question of legal profession in the midd-nineteenth century Serbia and how Serbian authorities dealed with it before Legal profession Act was brought in 1862. Creation of the Project is connected to correspondance between the Ministry of Justice and the State Council in July 1851. Initiator of the Project was the Ministry of Justice, and the State Council recommended the Ministry to start working on it. Submission of the Project had been postponed until the Code of Civil Judicial Proceedings was brought in 1853, and the Project was discussed at the State Council in 1854. The Council decided to give up the Project, with an opinion that lawers would not have had enough income to support themselves and that there had not been enough qualified men in Serbia for such an occupation.
