PC renewal reminder

18/01/2022

Members are reminded to ensure that their Practising Certificate (PC) application is received by the Society no later than 1 February 2022.

PC renewal deadline

Complete your application

Please remember:

  • A complete application consists of  a completed PC application and payment, either by EFT or by debit/credit card
  • No hard copy documentation needs to be sent to the Society by ordinary post
  • Bank transfers must be received by the Society, not just issued from your bank account, on or before 1 February 2022.

Service of State and Qualifying Certificate Applications

Applications for both solicitors in full-time service of the State, and those seeking Qualifying Certificates, should also be submitted online.

Your Dashboard

Members can monitor the progress of their PC applications on the My Applications page of their dashboard. Members are able to view the progress of their application by logging into their account via the Society website.

Society staff cannot access individual accounts, so if a member has a query they should first log into their account dashboard, which contains most information required to answer standard queries. Account dashboards also permit members to: 

  • Download a copy of their application
  • Reopen their application
  • Change their payment option

Please be advised that if an application is reopened, members must ensure that the application has been re-closed and resubmitted, otherwise it will not be listed in the Society’s system for processing.

Payments

There is no need to send your EFT payment receipt or any other documentation to the Society by ordinary post. Instead, firms can download the EFT payment form and email it to pc@lawsociety.ie

If your firm is paying for your PC, please select Pay by EFT as your payment option and then select My Firm is Paying.

Further information on PC forms can be found in the PC renewal area of the Law Society website.

If you experience any difficulty with making a payment by EFT or credit/debit card, please contact the Society’s web support team at webmaster@lawsociety.ie.
