How to enrol

To enrol for the exams, please apply to the Deputy Bailiff’s secretary in writing (R.Traisnel@courts.je).  For the first time you sit any examinations, you will need to submit:

  1. A letter of application addressed to the Deputy Bailiff, President of the Board of Examiners, outlining which exams will be taken in that first examination session. You will need to include your home address (used for all correspondence), personal contact information (either email or mobile) and also within that letter confirm you are registered with the Institute of Law.
  2. Copies of relevant qualifications that permit you to sit the qualifying examinations, all copies to be certified as a true copy by a Jersey advocate/solicitor.
  3. Photographic ID to be provided and certified as a true copy by a Jersey advocate/solicitor.

Once the deadline has passed for applications, and if the Deputy Bailiff has approved your application, you will receive your allocated candidate number. For subsequent examination sessions, you need only write with your candidate number to apply to sit particular examinations.
