Practising Certificate 2023: Reminder to all practising solicitors to apply before 1 February 2023

Hi all

Just a reminder to all Practitioners to apply for their 2023 Practising Certificates before 1 February 2023.

Any applications for practising certificates that are received after 1 February 2023 will result in the practising certificate being dated the date of actual receipt by the Registrar of Solicitors, rather than 1 January 2023 and an application to the President of the High Court will be necessary in order to have it backdated to 1 January 2023.

Further details are provided in the Practice Note section of the Law Society Website namely Notice from Law Society regarding 2023 Practising Certificate –
