Practice Management Course

A solicitor with an unrestricted Practising Certificate must attend a prescribed Practice Management Course approved by the Law Society before being allowed to practise as a:

  • partner
  • legal practitioner director
  • sole practitioner
  • solicitor on the record for a corporation or government department.

This is condition 3 of a Practising Certificate.

The Practice Management Course aims to improve:

  • the managerial skills and job satisfaction of solicitors 
  • the efficiency and cost effectiveness of practice
  • client satisfaction through the use of quality practice management procedures.

Course providers

The College of Law offers three-day courses throughout the year. For further information please visit the Legal Practice Management Course page on their website.
