What to expect before and after admission

1 January 2020

Before admission

When we are satisfied that you have met Regulation 3A.1 of the SRA Authorisation of Individuals Regulations we will send an email (a certificate of satisfaction) confirming your admission date.

Admission day

We publish a list of individuals admitted to the roll of solicitors on that day.

Search for your name on list of persons admitted to the roll of solicitors

You need to activate your mySRA account.

After admission

You will receive your admission certificate (confirming your admission) and your practising certificate (if you applied for one) within two weeks of your admission date.

When we issue your practising certificate, we will add you to the Solicitors Register and the Law Society will add you to Find a solicitor.

Admission ceremony

The Law Society (not the SRA) will invite you to book a place at an admission ceremony.

This will take place after your admission date at the Law Society Hall in Chancery Lane, London. Attendance is optional.
