Practising Certificate Renewals Update No.1


All New South Wales barristers' practising certificates expire on 30 June 2016. A new practising certificate has to have been issued before a barrister may practise on and from 1 July 2016.

All practising certificate renewal forms will be sent in the post/DX on Tuesday 26 April 2016. If you know you will be absent from chambers from 26 April until the due date of 7 June, you can contact the certification officer Barrie Anthony on 9232 4055, or e-mail to arrange for a renewal form to be sent to you now so you may complete the documentation and return it with your payment to avoid the statutory late fee – you can then arrange your insurance at a later date.

If you no longer wish to receive In Brief, please notify the Bar Association's
