Practising certificate renewals

The practising certificate and registration renewals window opens on 2 October and runs until 31 October 2017.

Renew early and make sure you are authorised for the next 12 months.

Help and guidance is available to support those completing applications. For more information, please see our FAQs or user guides, which are available now.

Practising fees for 2017/18 have now been agreed. These contribute to the costs of running the SRA, the Law Society, Legal Services Board, Legal Ombudsman and Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.

Significant public losses, as a result of solicitors' involvement in questionable schemes, may lead to an increase in high value claims on the Compensation Fund. So to make sure there is sufficient funding, contributions are increasing for the first time in three years.
