Solicitors urged to apply for 2024 PCs

The PC renewal 2024 launched on 1 December 2023, and solicitors are encouraged to submit their practising-certificate applications as early as possible through the online portal on the Law Society website.

Deadline – 1 February 2024

To ensure that your practising certificate is dated 1 January 2024, you must submit a fully completed application, with full payment of fees, through the Law Society website on or before 1 February 2024.

This is a statutory deadline, and failure to meet this deadline will require you to backdate your practising certificate to 1 January by application to the President of the High Court.

Go to www.lawsociety.ie/PC.

Ensuring accurate records

It is also important to ensure that your employment information and practising status are up to date.

Before submitting your application, please verify the accuracy of your records on the Law Society's website through your dashboard.


Membership of the Law Society offers a range of benefits – including library access, Gazette subscription, career, practice, and wellbeing support, and the recently launched Legal Services Excellence Standard.

Solicitors who are under one year qualified pay €20 for membership for 2024.
