Application for a Practising Certificate
What conditions will be imposed?
Generally you will be issued with a practising certificate authorising you to engage in legal practice as an employee of a law practice that is subject to:
- A period of Supervised Legal Practice, and
- A requirement to complete an approved Practice Management Course before you will be entitled to practise as a principal of a law practice.
If you are intending to practise as a sole practitioner, you will require a practising certificate that is not subject to condition 2 (the requirement to engage in supervised legal practice). To apply to remove condition 2, please make a submission by way of a statutory declaration addressing the Supervised Legal Practice Guidelines for consideration by the Law Society's Licensing Committee.
