Students can complete the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (the PLT) program as an alternative to undertaking a traineeship. The program concentrates on the development of ‘lawyering’ skills such as legal research, analysis and problem solving, legal writing and drafting, interviewing and oral communication, advising, advocacy, dispute resolution, professional ethics and conduct, and accounting. These skills are taught in a practical context in a simulated office environment. The Professional Legal Training (PLT) program is a postgraduate qualification that entitles law graduates to be admitted as solicitors in Queensland and NSW. Students who successfully complete the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice may also receive up to35 credit points towards Bond's Master of Laws [Legal Prcatice].
