What is Practical Legal Training?
To be admitted as a lawyer in Australia, you need to complete a Practical Legal Training (PLT) program with an accredited provider such as The College of Law. PLT is the most commonly chosen pathway to admission in Australia, although an alternative pathway to admission does exist in some states. PLT provides you with the skills, practical knowledge and understanding of values needed to practise as an entry level lawyer so that you can quickly make a contribution to your workplace. Areas covered in PLT include:
• Lawyers’ Skills: drafting, advocacy, client interviewing, negotiation and dispute resolution
The national competencies required to successfully complete a PLT program have been developed by the Australasian Professional Legal Education Council and the Law Admissions Consultative Committee.
