Notice_Applications for Accreditation as a Training Service Provider for 2022
The Legal Practice Council (LPC) would like to inform all legal practitioners that applications will now be accepted from institutions and training providers who wish to become accredited by the LPC to offer training in 2022. All applicants must apply using the approved Norms and Standards Guidelines for Accreditation as a Training Service Provider (“Norms and Standards”). The accreditation applications will be considered strictly in accordance with, and subject to, the guidelines set out in the Norms and Standards. Please note that institutions and training providers that were approved for 2021 must reapply for accreditation for 2022.
All institutions and training providers who wish to become accredited to offer training for 2022 must download and complete the application form in the link below, attach all necessary supporting documentation, and submit the application on or before 1 October 2021.
The accreditation will be for a period of one year. This is due to the fact that Parliament is, at present, considering amending Regulations 6 and 7 of the Legal Practice Act. If the amendments are effected, it will necessitate amendment of the Norms and Standards that will be used for accreditations for 2023 and thereafter.

Institutions and training providers will be notified of the outcome of their accreditation application for 2022 by no later than 30 November 2021.
