Practical Legal Training


What is Practical Legal Training?

PLT is a structured training program that will develop your practical skills and proficiency in the actual day-to-day practice of law. It is usually undertaken at the completion of your law degree and is an essential requirement for admission as a lawyer in Australia*. Successful completion of a PLT program leads to the award of a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP), which makes you eligible to apply for admission as a legal practitioner in your jurisdiction.
