Once you have finished your NCA assignments (either exams or law school courses), you can ask us for a Certificate of Qualification as proof you have completed them.

To do that, visit your NCA portal and follow these steps:

  • Select “Manage Yourself”
  • Click on the heading “Request Certificate”
  • Complete the form
  • Click “Submit”

The Certificate of Qualification is not the same as a Canadian law degree. It proves that you have finished the work that the NCA required. It also shows that your knowledge of Canadian law is similar to the knowledge of someone who got their law degree through an approved Canadian law school program.
