You will need this certificate if you intend to practice law in Western Australia. Legal practice means being paid to do any work in connection with the administration of the law, including preparing deeds, instruments or contracts relating to legal proceedings of any kind.
Depending on the type of legal practice you intend to undertake, the Board may impose different conditions on your practising certificate. For example, your conditions as a sole practitioner will be different in comparison to the conditions of an employee of a law firm.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
