- Law practices that engage in legal practice in Victoria.
The Register includes:
For legal practitioners – name, date of birth, date of admission to the legal profession, address for service, conditions imposed on the practitioner’s practising certificate (including the type of practice authorised), an indication of whether the practitioner is a barrister, the name of a law practice where the practitioner is employed (if they are an employee of a law practice), and any business names the practitioner trades under (if they are a sole practitioner).
