Study Load 

This is a full-time program.  

Students undertaking this program will need to devote at least 30 -35 hours per week during the coursework component of the program. This option suits students who are looking for the quickest path to admission.  

We recommend that students working full-time do not undertake the full-time program. 
 

 

International Students and Lawyers

We can help you apply for an 11 month visa to complete the PLT program. 

This is a CRICOS approved PLT program (CRICOS course code 069734C). If you apply for this program, we can provide you with an eCOE which will allow you to obtain a student visa.
 

 

Structure

The Practical Legal Training program is undertaken in three components:
  1. Coursework
  2. Work Experience
  3. Continuing Professional Education 

 

Complete all three components to  receive your Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice and be admitted as an Australian lawyer.
