Become workplace ready with the Faculty of Law’s accredited Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (also known as ‘PLT’). Taught by industry professionals, you’ll receive all the practical training and essential skills needed to become a practising lawyer.

About the program

The Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, also known as Professional Legal Training (PLT), is the link between a student''s law degree and becoming a practising lawyer. The PLT program is a coursework degree that provides structured and supervised legal training, based on the Competency Standards for entry level lawyers developed by the admitting authorities and the Australian Professional Legal Education Council (APLEC). The on campus (full-time) program consists of the following three components: -Practical Legal Training: 1 semester (full-time); -Practical Experience (75 days); and -Continuing Practical Training (75 hours, undertaken concurrently with Practical Experience component). 

Professional outcomes

Successful completion of the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice will enable you to apply for admission to legal practice in Australia (except South Australia or Northern Territory). Students should contact the relevant admitting authority to ascertain the requirements for admission in specific States or Territories.

Structure and subjects

The Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice program has three components, as follows:

1. Practical Legal Training component

The on campus (full-time) 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 and professional ethics and conduct. These skills are taught in a practical context in a simulated office environment.

2. Practical Experience component

Students are required to complete 75 days of work experience in an approved law office in Australia. The work experience can be undertaken in more than one law office and can be completed prior to or after the Practical Legal Training component. Our PLT Coordinator can assist students in obtaining a placement.

3. Continuing Practical Training component

This provides students with a further 75 hours of training relevant to the Practical Experience component and is completed online. It is undertaken concurrently to the Practical Experience component.

Teaching approach

Bond Law’s unique personalised approach to teaching allows on campus students to benefit from one-on-one access to experienced practising legal professionals, PLT legal academics and acknowledged industry experts. Our visiting guest lecture program also gives our students first-hand knowledge from experienced legal professionals on practical legal and advocacy skills.
