To apply for registration as an Australian-registered foreign lawyer in SA you will need to complete and submit a Form W - Application for Foreign Lawyer Registration along with any additional documents specified.
On receipt of a properly executed application the Society will issue an invoice for payment of the following:
Prescribed fee: $546
Administration levy: $150
We will start processing your application when we receive payment of the invoice in full.
You should allow at least 1 month for the Society to process and determine your application. This time frame may be extended if further information is required.
If your application is approved you will be issued with a Foreign Lawyer Registration Certificate and will be entered on the South Australian Foreign Lawyer Register.
If your application is refused, or the Society decides to impose conditions on your registration, you will be provided with reasons for the decision as soon as reasonably practicable.
The Foreign Lawyer Registration Certificate is valid until the end of the financial year in which it is issued. If you want to renew your Certificate you will need to contact the Society at least 4 weeks before the expiry of your current certificate.
