FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Practical Legal Training (PLT)?

PLT is a structured training program designed to help you develop the practical, day-to-day skills you will need as an entry-level lawyer and is the next essential step to being admitted as a lawyer following completion of your law degree.

When can I start PLT?

As the largest provider of PLT in Australia, we offer more than 90 courses a year. Generally, in each state, you will be able to start in January, March, April, May, July, October and December.

This means you don’t have to wait to start your PLT if you finish mid-year or if you want to take a break or travel before starting your PLT course.

Can I start while I'm still at Uni?

Usually students start their PLT after they finish their law degree, but the Early Commencement Rule means you can start once you have completed all your Priestley 11 core subjects with only 2 electives remaining on your law degree (or equivalent).

Where can I complete my PLT?

As a national provider of Practical Legal Training we offer state-specific programs in seven  Australian states and territories.

You will learn the ins-and-outs of your local law from qualified lawyers with extensive experience practising in your jurisdiction.
