Application for a Local Practising Certificate for the 2019/2020 Financial Year

23 Apr 2019

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 2019. 

If you hold a current local practising certificate, and unless you have notified the Legal Practice Board (Board) that you are not going to renew your local practising certificate,  on or after Monday, 29 April 2019 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
