Legal Profession Admission Board

​​​Corporate and Government Lawyers​

Corporate and government lawyers in NSW are no longer exempt from the requirement to be admitted or to hold a practising certificate in order to engage in legal practice.

The NSW Government has introduced exemptions and transitional arrangements to help manage the impact on affected persons.

More information is in the fact sheets for Corporate Lawyers [PDF 187kb]​ and Government Lawyers [PDF 188kb].

In some circumstances you must notify the LPAB if you are practising pursuant to a transitional exemption.  If you are required to notify the LPAB, please complete the online notification form below.
