Practical Legal Training Joint Information Session

Practical Legal Training Joint Information Session

The JD can feel like a journey in and of itself, but it does not stop at graduation for those wanting to practice law! You may have heard about Practical Legal Training (PLT), which is the final step required in order to be admitted to legal practice in Australia. Whether you're toward the end of your degree, or wanting to figure out just what PLT entails, come along to our joint lunchtime information session. You will hear from The College of Law and Leo Cussen, two PLT providers in Melbourne, who will also be able to answer any questions you may have about the course and what is required to complete it.
