Licence to Practise

NALP is a self-regulatory body for its members and as such we offer members the opportunity to apply for a 'NALP Licence to Practise'.

Please note that there are strict eligibility criteria to fulfill such as:

1. being either an Associate NALP member (A.NALP), a Graduate (Grad.NALP), a NALP Fellow (F.NALP) or a NALP Principal Fellow (PF.NALP) with a minimum of 3 years experience and competency in the area(s) of law in which you wish to practise,

2. providing evidence of such experience and competency in the form of qualifications and letters of reference from employers or clients (the burden lies with applicants to provide this)

3. have Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) in place prior to making the application - we now have a specialised broker waiting to give you a quotation - see how to get a quote: Professional Indemnity Company

The cost of making an application for a Licence is £100 and this is non-refundable, so please ensure that you have the appropriate evidence and fulfill the criteria before making the application.
