Barrister Connect - online practising certificate renewals

Barristers are reminded of the Authorisation to Practise process for the renewal of practising certificates in 2013. During the process, barristers will be asked to:

  • Verify current contact details
  • Verify practising status and entitlement to exercise reserved legal activities
  • Confirm whether requisite amount of continuing professional development (CPD) activity has been completed
  • Declare that you have obtained and paid for adequate indemnity insurance
  • Pay your practising certificate fee, and
  • Sign a declaration of truth, which is designed to ensure understanding of the process and new system

The renewal process is completed via a quick and easy online system called Barrister Connect:

There is also a section on Barrister Connect for barristers to enter equality and diversity data.

The deadline for 2013 renewals is the 31 March 2013.
