Practice Management Course

Condition 3 is a discretionary condition imposed pursuant to s.53 of the Legal Profession Uniform Law (NSW) and Rule 16(b)(ii) of the Legal Profession Uniform General Rules 2015. If a practising certificate is subject to this condition, the holder must complete a Practice Management Course before being eligible to practise as a principal of a law practice.

The Practice Management Course aims to improve the managerial skills and job satisfaction of solicitors, the efficiency and cost effectiveness of practice and client satisfaction through the use of quality practice management procedures.
