Practising Certificate fees
The annual fees for a practising certificate include:
- Practising certificate fee – this is the same fee for all practising certificate holders.
- Contribution to the Legal Practitioners Fidelity Fund – this is only applicable for practitioners who wish to be granted a principal or employee practising certificate. Corporate legal practitioners and government legal practitioners are not required to make a contribution.
A membership fee is also payable if you elect to become a solicitor member of The Law Society of New South Wales. Read more about the benefits of membership.
Important fee information
Changing your practising certificate may attract additional fees/contributions. An additional Legal Practitioners Fidelity Fund contribution will be required if your practising certificate changes for corporate legal practitioner or government legal practitioner to principal or employee of a law practice.
For a description of all fees payable, please see the Scale of Fees.
Note: All fees are halved after 1 January each year.
