The Legal Profession Uniform Law is a schedule to the Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2014 (Vic) and is applied in NSW by the Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2014 (NSW) and in Western Australia by the Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2022 (WA).
Uniform Rules provide the Uniform Law's underpinning operational detail. While the Legal Services Council makes all Uniform Rules, responsibility for developing rules is divided between different bodies. For more explanations on the different types of Uniform Rules see the information under the Uniform Framework section.
