The Supreme Court of Victoria conducts admission ceremonies throughout the year. They take place when new lawyers are admitted to practise Australian law and are welcomed to the profession. The ceremonies are held in Banco - courtroom 1 - and can be watched live via webcast. Each ceremony is recorded. Recent recordings are available to view below and older recordings can be viewed via the archived ceremonies video portal

The Chief Justice extends her warmest congratulations to all new lawyers on their admission to practise.

Orders admitting lawyers 'on the papers'

In March 2020, the Court indefinitely adjourned in-person admission ceremonies in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Court will resume in-person admission ceremonies in April 2022. However, new lawyers seeking admission will continue to have the option to be admitted ‘on the papers’.

For more information, see Orders admitting new lawyers to practise.

Process of admissions
