Renewal of practising certificates


Applications for renewal of practising certificates will be opening shortly. All barristers will receive an email containing a link to renew their practising certificates using the same online system as previous years. The 2024/2025 fees for practising certificates are the same as this year for junior barristers (1-5 years’ call) but have been increased by 1% for junior barristers of over 5 years’ call and silks. Applications for waiver of fees will be considered in accordance with the NSW Bar Association Fee Waiver Policy in the link here.

All applications to renew must be received by Sunday, 30 June 2024. Any applications received after Friday, 7 June 2024 will attract the statutory late fee. Late fees will also be applied to applications received after 1 July 2024, where the applicant held a practising certificate prior to 30 June 2024.

If you are not intending to renew your practising certificate, you can advise the Bar Association of your intention using the same link. You will also have the option of moving to Class B membership of the Association.

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