    Career Outcomes

    The Professional Legal Training (PLT) program is a postgraduate qualification that entitles law graduates to be admitted as solicitors in Queensland or NSW.

    Professional Recognition

    The course is modelled on the New South Wales Law Society’s professional program and has been accredited by the admission authorities in New South Wales and Queensland. Mutual recognition legislation facilitates the process of practitioners admitted in one state seeking admission in other Australian jurisdictions.

    Course Structure

    Students complete a 15-week intensive on-campus skills component, followed by a 15-week placement in a law firm. The Faculty assists students to obtain a placement, which may take place in any part of Australia or even overseas (subject to conditions).

    These 15 weeks of practical experience will be augmented by a further 75 hours of Continuing Practical Training. This is undertaken by distance education mode during the 15-week period.
