Don’t be caught out

Leadership Practising Certificate 

Check your PC and LIV membership. I have just completed my practising certificate renewal due by the end of April. If you have not done so I urge you to contact the Victorian Legal Services Board (LSB)immediately. Last year, a number of large and small firms were caught with provisions requiring fees to be paid back, that is fees earned while operating “unlicensed”. Check you have received a receipt as well as an email acknowledging receipt of your application. A third email confirms that a practising certificate was issued. If you do not have all three, take immediate action to follow up with the LSB. The Commissioner for Uniform Legal Services Regulation is still looking at how those affected adversely in the past may be assisted.
