Application for a Local Practising Certificate for the 2018/2019 Financial Year

27 Apr 2018

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).

The online application form will be available from 1 May 2018. 

Unless you have notified the Legal Practice Board (Board) that you are not going to renew your local practising certificate, if you hold a current practising certificate, on or after Monday, 30 April 2018 you will receive an email containing instructions on how to renew your practising certificate.

All practitioners should ensure that they keep the Board updated with their email address. If you are unsure if the Board has your correct email address please email the Board at

If you require any further information regarding your practising certificate renewal application process, please contact the Board on +61 08 6211 3600 or by email at
