Information for organisations who employ lawyers
As an employer, you can make payment for your employees practising certificates by:
- Providing them with a corporate credit card number they enter when they submit their applications
- Arranging BPAY payments. If your lawyers select ‘BPAY’ as their payment method they will receive an email with the BPAY details, including a unique reference code. Use that reference code when you make payment.
- Master Card
We are no longer able to take bulk payments for lawyer application or fidelity fund fees. Please arrange for your lawyers to make payment by credit card or BPAY.
If you have a legal entity LSB Online account you can log in and see the lawyers that are assigned to the entity. You will be able to see:
- Lawyers associated with your organisation
- If a lawyer has submitted their application (submitted or not submitted will appear as the status)
You will not be able to see the payment details or make payment here.

No. We cannot provide refunds for practising certificate fees.
A partnership must have a minimum of two partners. If one partner leaves and there is no replacement partner the registration of the entity must change to either a sole practice or an Incorporated Law Practice. If you choose to become an Incorporated Law Practice you must be registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. Find out more about registering a law practice.
