Application for a Local Practising Certificate for the 2022/2023 Financial Year


21 Apr 2022

The Legal Profession Rules 2009 provide that the standard renewal period for the renewal of practising certificates is from 1 May until 31 May each year. Applications received during this time pay the standard application fee of $1,250 (plus a $20 contribution to the Solicitors Guarantee Fund, if required).

This year the online application form will be available from 1 May 2022.

If you hold a current local practising certificate (and the Board hasn’t been notified that you will not be renewing your practising certificate) on or after Thursday, 28 April 2022 you will receive an email containing instructions on how to renew your local practising certificate.

You should ensure that you keep the Board updated with your current email address. If you are unsure if the Board has your correct email address please email the Board at general@lpbwa.com.

If you require any further information regarding your local practising certificate renewal application process, please contact the Board by email at general@lpbwa.com.
