This is a full-time program that requires you to devote 30-35 hours per week during the coursework component.
If you're looking for the quickest path to admission, this program is perfect for you. However, we recommend against it for students who are working full-time.
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 (received your final results), 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 Victoria, 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.
If you would like to start your Practical Legal Training early, you will need to seek approval from the Victorian Legal Admissions Board (VLAB). Please contact the Victorian Legal Admissions Board on 03 9604 2451 for further information.
You will have to provide evidence of your law qualification or early commencement letter from the admitting authority before the Practical Legal Training course start date to commence the program.
How to Apply
- A copy of your Academic Transcript (unofficial transcript or completion letter is sufficient)
- A current colour photo of your face
- Unique Student Identifier (USI)
This is a quick process which only takes 15 minutes. We will email you once your enrolment has been processed and confirmed.
