Scheme Participation 2017 – 2018


As part of the Law Society’s ongoing support for its members in their practice, an online system allowing law practices to apply for their participation in The Law Society of New South Wales Scheme (the Scheme) for the 2017 – 2018 Scheme year will again be available. The online facility is open from Wednesday 25 October 2017.

We know you are busy so the online facility has been further developed since its launch last year to fast-track the process and make it easier for you to use.

All principals of a sole practice have been automatically nominated as the Scheme Co-ordinator for their practice, and most other law practices now have a Scheme Co-ordinator recorded with the Law Society. All Scheme Co-ordinators should have received details of their secured username which will give them access to the online system.

It is important for the Scheme participation process that all legal practitioner details for your practice are correct and, that all legal practitioners in your law practice are current solicitor members or life members of the Law Society.

If these details are not up-to-date, you will be unable to proceed with the online participation application. Please contact the Law Society Registry by phone on (02) 9926 0156 or by email at registry@lawsociety.com.au should you need to make any changes to your records in that regard. Changes are usually processed by the Registry within 48 hours. Once these are effected, your law practice Scheme Co-ordinator can sign on to the Scheme website and commence the online Application. 

Please carefully read the checklist we have prepared for you on the online facility to ensure that you have all documents ready for uploading that may be required for the online application process.

Payment can be made online by credit card or if preferred, by cheque. A remittance advice will be emailed to the practice if the cheque payment option is selected.
