Notice board

Admission ceremonies for 2016 have now closed.  Future dates for 2017 will be published when released by the Supreme Court of Victoria.

All applicants for admission require two forms of identification when lodging their application for a compliance certificate. See Admission procedure for information on types of acceptable identification.

Police Reports from foreign jurisdictions are no longer required when lodging an application for a compliance certificate.  If you have ever lived in a foreign jurisdiction you must list the dates and country of residence. If the Board considers it appropriate to obtain a foreign report it will request you to do so.

After filing your application for a compliance certificate you should pay your fees online. See fees page for further details. Booking into an admission ceremony will be the last step in the process and will only occur when an application is complete. This includes assessment of suitability, receipt of all relevant documents and payment of fees. An email will be sent once your file is complete with information on how to book into a ceremony. Bookings will close one month prior to an admission ceremony unless booked out earlier.

The web stream of the admission ceremony of 5 October 2016 is available.
