If you intend to become a legal practitioner you will need to be admitted to the legal profession. Legal practitioners are lawyers, solicitors or barristers. In addition to this admission, you will also need a practising certificate.
All new local legal practitioners must engage in supervised legal practice for a prescribed period of time.
- Separate application requirements apply to local applicants, interstate practitioners, New Zealand practitioners, and practitioners from overseas.
- If you intend to practice law as a corporation, you must apply for a notice of intention to provide legal services.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
