Regulation 4: Certificates of completion of the academic stage


If regulation 3.1 applies to you, you must apply to us for a certificate of completion and lodge such evidence as we may require.


If we are satisfied that you have satisfactorily completed a QLD, a Diploma in Law or a CPE, we will issue a certificate stating that you have completed the academic stage of training.


If we refuse your application for a certificate in respect of a degree or diploma, we may accept your degree or diploma as entitling you to take a CPE under regulations 6 and 8.
