Practising certificate renewals have closed
Practising certificate renewals are now closed
All 2019/20 practising certificates expired on 30 June 2020. If you did not renew your certificate you will now need to apply for a new certificate. A 200% surcharge applies if you apply for a new certificate between 1 July and 30 September.
You can apply for a new certificate at LSB Online.
Didn't renew in time?
If you tried to renew your certificate and needed our assistance to finalise your renewal, and we were not able to get back to you before 30 June, we will not penalise you for this. We will consider your circumstances and where appropriate either not apply or refund the surcharge. A member of our Enquiries and Review team will get back to you as soon as possible to assist you to renew your certificate. You can continue to practice while we do this.
If did not renew your certificate you can let us know via LSB Online, or send an email via the lawyer enquiry form.
If your certificate is pending you can continue to practice while we process this. You don't need to contact us. If approved, we will send you a new certificate via LSB Online.
