Participate in compulsory onsite workshops held from 9am – 5pm for the first five days of the program. A timetable of the workshops will be provided.
Attendance is recorded for the workshops.
Please note you will need to bring your own device to the first week of the course.
This is a full-time program.
Students undertaking this option will need to devote 30 – 35 hours per week during the coursework component of the program. This program suits students who are looking for the quickest path to admission.
We recommend that students working full-time do not undertake the full-time option.
The Practical Legal Training program is undertaken in three components:
- Work Experience
- Continuing Professional Education
Complete all three components to receive your Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice and be admitted as an Australian lawyer.
To enrol in this program you will need to:
- Be a graduate in law or have qualified to graduate in law (completed your final exam), and
- Your law qualification is Australian or equivalent
- Be able to provide proof of completion of your law degree (unofficial transcript or completion letter is sufficient)
In South Australia, it may be possible to start earlier if you have completed all Priestley 11 core subjects of your law degree and have no more than two electives remaining in your law degree, double degree or equivalent qualification.
You will have to provide evidence of your law qualification or early commencement letter from the admitting authority by the Practical Legal Training course census date.
