Questions in the application form
To help you get ready, here are the questions you will be asked.
This tells you what your application is for and what information you need to give us.
Have you reflected on your practice and addressed any identified learning and development needs in the past year?
If you have been placed on furlough, we have a Q&A on how this impacts your continuing competence.
If you are currently, or have recently been, on maternity leave (or equivalent) or are a registered foreign lawyer based mainly outside England and Wales, you may be eligible for a reduced fee.
This is where you will confirm the information given within this application is correct and the declaration statement must be ticked to proceed.
The fee summary page will show you how the fee is broken down - administration, regulatory and Compensation Fund contribution. In most cases we will approve your practising certificate or registration application immediately and you will pay all your fees in one go.
However, if we need to further assess your application, you will only pay your administration fee for now. If we approve the application, you will then pay the regulatory fee and Compensation Fund contribution.
