Australia's Court of Appeal have rejected Republican pleas that Carl Moller should be allowed to exempt himself from taking an oath as part of an admission ceremony to practice law in Victoria.
The Court ruled that the oath was to the Queen as Queen of Australia, not Queen of England and would therefore not conflict with the oath of citizenship.
The young republican refuses to take the oath, claiming it would be a violation of conscience.

The firm is now calling for an urgent review of the admission ceremony
