​Admission Fee Increase 

 On 1 July 2016 the  fee for admission to the Australian legal profession was increased from $900 to $920.25. This amendment is provided in the Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Amendment (Fees) Regulation 2016:
To minimise the impact of the increase, the Executive Officer will waive the fee increase for one calendar month. Anyone applying for admission before 1 August 2016 will only be required to pay the previous fee of $900.
