Good day. I am a South African practising Attorney now

Resolved Question:

Good day. I am a South African practising Attorney now for 31 years. I have my own practice and specialise in Property Law and Deceased Estates as well as being a Notary.
Kindly advise what is required to practise law in the UK. I hold a British Passport as I was born in the UK and would like to think about relocating back to the UK. I have heard that here is scope to become a Notary or be used as a Notary in the UK. Would you know of any opportunities offered or opening for Attorneys from SA in the UK or any Attorney relocating. I was also thinking along the lines of doing work for fellow South Africans wanting to or already living in the UK.
Any information would be of great help.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards
Neil

Hi Neil,To practice as a lawyer in the UK, you would need to complete the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test (QLTT). This is like going back to University.There is scope for work as a Notary, but again, you will have to transfer your qualifications to the UK. The Notaries Society may be able to assist in the transfer.Further details of the QLTT can be found at the following link: https://qlts.co.uk/qlts-assessments/qlts-vs-qlttIf you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.Kind regards,
