Australian Legal Profession Register

This Register can be used to find information about Australian legal practitioners - solicitors and barristers - in NSW and Victoria. Information about Australian legal practitioners in Western Australia will be added later this year. 

The State or Territory displayed is the jurisdiction in which the practising certificate has been issued but this does not necessarily reflect the principal place of practice of the legal practitioner.

If you require further details of any legal practitioner, or are unable to find details of a practitioner, please contact the relevant local regulatory authority listed below.
