- Completion of relevant reading and activities online
- A three day workshop at The College of Law in Melbourne CBD
During the course you will develop a practical business plan crafted to your prospective business needs (under our guidance and support).

WHY CHOOSE THE COLLEGE?
The College of Law has been at the forefront of practical legal education since 1974. More than 60,000 of our graduates work across all facets of the industry – and we’re one of the most trusted names in legal training in Australia and New Zealand.
The College’s Legal Practice Management Course builds on over 16 years’ experience of running the equivalent program in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia, in helping thousands of lawyers achieve their career goals of becoming a principal or establishing their own practice as a sole practitioner.
It also draws on our insights into legal practice gained from our proven and innovative learning programs that are based on sound educational principles.
The course gave me so many lightbulb moments and armed me with practical tools that I was able to immediately implement within my business. Now I have a clear and detailed business plan that is the blueprint for my firm and I am in control. I highly recommend the course to all lawyers in leadership roles, whether you have been a leading lawyer for years or are just beginning the leadership phase of your career.
The course is divided into eight topics that are facilitated by leaders in their fields:
- Business Development and Marketing
- Ethics and Professional Standards
- Financial Management
- Leadership and Management
- Business Strategy and Succession Planning
- Risk Management
- Practice Management Systems and Technology
- Trust Accounting
You will have access to your online materials and compulsory exercises from the Orientation Date.
