Call ceremonies

New lawyers must be presented to the court in a call and admission ceremony, but no longer need to attend that ceremony prior to issuance of their practising certificate.

However, presentation to the court is required before the first renewal of a certificate (i.e., before the end of the calendar year in which the applicant qualifies for call and admission).
