The QLTT covers four main subject areas (known as Heads). Not all lawyers taking the test will be required to sit all four Heads as it is dependent upon the jurisdiction in which a lawyer is qualified. Before sitting the test all candidates will be required to apply to the Law Society for a Certificate of Eligibility.
This Certificate will state which Head(s) a candidate is required to pass and any requirement for further training, if any. No candidate will be able to sit the test without providing a Certificate of Eligibility.
The process for issuing Certificates of Eligibility normally takes approximately 6-8 weeks. Therefore it is essential that you submit your completed application to the Law Society at an early stage.
