Justice of the Peace, change of address and lost property

Justice of the Peace

A Justice of the Peace (or JP) is a legally recognised witness for statutory declarations, and is able to certify signatures and copied documents. They offer this service for free.

Our Legal Service offers JP services to SUPRA members. Contact us to make an appointment, come to our legal drop in times (1pm-3pm, Mondays and Thursdays), or come to the office during opening hours and if one of our lawyers is free they can witness or certify your documents. Please bring your prepared statutory declaration, documents to be witnessed or copies to be certified, as well as your student ID or photo identification.

There are many other JPs at the University of Sydney, most ask you to make an appointment beforehand: find a JP near campus. You can also find a JP near you using the JP Public Register.
