Issuing of practising certificates effective 1 July 2020

01 Jul 2020

Today is the first day of the practising certificate period from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021.
Please note that the Board has delayed the printing of the 2020/2021 practising certificates to ensure all practitioners applying to renew had time to apply according to the Board’s notices on 2020/2021 renewals found here and payment of fees found here.
If the Board has accepted your application to renew your local practising certificate, pursuant to section 39(3) of the Legal Profession Act 2008 your expiring certificate will remain in force until your renewal application is finally determined, or you withdraw your application. Meaning you will still be able to engage in legal practice until your practising certificate effective 1 July 2020 is issued.
It is anticipated that the Board will begin issuing practising certificates by Friday, 3 July 2020.
