Cancellation of admission ceremonies

Issued: 03 July 2020


The Supreme Court has cancelled all admission ceremonies that were scheduled for Friday 10 July 2020, Friday 14 August and Friday 11 September 2020. 

We do not yet know if ceremonies will resume from October 2020, and we are unlikely to know that for some time.

For applicants who wish to be admitted without attending a physical ceremony they are still able to book to be admitted on those days and can complete the admission formalities remotely.  Their admission as a lawyer will have full legal effect from the date of their ceremony booking.

While any inconvenience caused by the cancellation is sincerely regretted, this decision reflects the current health advice for protecting the wellbeing of all involved in the ceremonies.
