Register of legal practitioners and law practices
What is the Australian Legal Profession Register?
Under the Legal Profession Uniform Law (Victoria) the Victorian Legal Services Board is required to maintain an ‘Australian Legal Profession Register’ where the practitioner’s home jurisdiction is Victoria.
The Register must:
(a) include the information required under the Uniform Rules; and
(b) specify whether each practitioner is or is not a barrister; and
(c) include any other prescribed information.
The Register is available for public inspection, without charge, at the Board’s office during normal business hours.
Information recorded in a register may be provided to members of the public in any other manner approved by the Victorian Legal Services Board.

Personal information collected by the Board is governed by the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic).
