Admission calendar



The Supreme Court of Victoria has indefinitely adjourned all in-person applications for admission to the Australian legal profession in light of COVID-19.  

A process has been developed to allow admissions to occur ‘on the papers’ by order of the Chief Justice. 

You will receive an email confirming your eligibility for a compliance certificate when your application is complete, and your fee payment has been received by VLAB.
