How do you become a CAC accredited agent?

Accredited Agent means a provider who is authorized to deliver certain goods / services and can be trading in a specific area, however, an accredited agent is not a sole provider.


As a new wig it might be quite challenging for you in adapting to the ‘real world’ of practice (as you know, what we are taught at the Law School, is quite different from what is obtainable in practice).

Well, here is what you need to know when going for accreditation.  First, visit a CAC state registry closest to you. Second, obtain application forms from the accrediting officer. Fill out the forms and attach your passport photograph in the designated section; then attach photocopies of the following credentials:

  • Bar Practising fee receipt for the year of accreditation;
  • LLB degree;
  • Call to Bar certificate;
  • Qualifying certificate;
  • NYSC discharge certificate;
  • National I.D card or National Passport, or a valid driver’s license.

Remember to go with the originals of the above documents for sighting.

The third step is to take your application form and the subsequently attached credentials to the accrediting officer for verification and assessment. Fourth, obtain a teller from the accounts section as you will be required to pay a fee of N5000 for individuals and N10000 for firms. Your accreditation card would be ready in a few days.
