Resolved Question:

Hi Alex
I'm a solicitor who retired from private practice in January and my practising certificate falls due for renewal next month. I sit part-time in a judicial capacity and seem to recall that, in that respect, a solicitor no longer needs to hold a PC. I don't particularly want to renew, if I can avoid it. Do you happen to know the answer? I've tried researching it online but without success. Apologies for the curved ball: completely understand if this is outside your field.

Hello
Welcome to Just Answer
Thank you for your question.
It is my understanding that you need a practising certificate to carry out a reserved legal activity. The Legal Services Act 2007 defines reserved legal activities and it specifically does not include activities of a judicial nature.
