Certificates of Fitness

If you intend to engage in legal practice principally in an Australian jurisdiction other than Victoria, or become a Barrister or Notary Public, you may be required to provide a Certificate of Fitness and Letter of Good Standing.

From 1 July 2020 the VLSB will issue Certificates of Fitness for Victorian Solicitors while the Supreme Court of Victoria prepares Certificates of Good Standing.

To request a Certificate of Fitness please lodge a request via the VLSB.

Letters of Good Standing

The Supreme Court of Victoria requires a Certificate of Fitness from the VLSB before it will prepare a Certificate of Good Standing. Applications for both certificates can be lodged at the same time.
