Take the next step in your career, without even stepping outside
 
While you're studying your law degree, you might not have given much thought about what happens after you're finished. 
 
Pull up a chair, because we’re hosting our first Admission to Practice Academy, a series of online information sessions all about what happens after law school, but before you can become a lawyer. 
 
Attend as many sessions as you’d like from the comfort of your couch, desk or favourite coffee shop, and get ready to learn from our experts. From work experience and practical legal training to finding a job and career options, our speakers will cover it all.

It is a series of online information sessions for law students and graduates. The free, five-day event features seven sessions covering topics such as:
  • Admission to practice
  • Work experience
  • Practical Legal Training
  • New lawyer stories 
How does it work?
