State Legal Admission Authority (SLAA)

If you intend to apply for migration to Australia under one of the General Skilled Migration categories, you must have a nominated occupation which is on the Skilled Occupations List at the time you apply. In order to make a valid application, you must have obtained a skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority for your nominated occupation.

SLAA is the assessing authority for the following occupations:

  • Barristers; and
  • Solicitors.

To meet the skills assessment requirement you must be admitted to an SLAA as a barrister or solicitor.

You are required to be assessed under the state or territory in which you are to practice. For detailed information, contact:
