Process for admissions
During the COVID-19 pandemic, a new process was developed to allow admissions to occur ‘on the papers’ by order of the Chief Justice. Although in-person admissions resumed in April 2022, new lawyers seeking admission will continue to have the option to be admitted ‘on the papers’.
The Supreme Court of Victoria conducts admission ceremonies throughout the year. Admission ceremonies take place when new lawyers are admitted to practise Australian law and welcomed to the profession.
The Victorian Legal Admissions Board regulates entry to the legal profession in Victoria. The Board determines the eligibility of individual applicants and issues compliance certificates for admission to the Australian legal profession.
For more information about being admitted to practise as an Australian lawyer, visit the Victorian Legal Admissions Board website.
For the purpose of s 16(3) of the Legal Profession Uniform Law (Victoria) (LPUL) and in accordance with s 16(1)(a) of the LPUL, please note that on 17 November 2023, the Victorian Legal Admissions Board (VLAB) provided compliance certificates to the Court in respect of the persons listed on the VLAB website.
