QUT’s unique Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice

QUT is a leading provider of Practical Legal Training in Queensland and we are Brisbane’s only university to offer a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (LP41). We have offered this successful course for over 35 years. The program offers problem-solving scenarios and reflects the daily realities of a modern legal practice. It is a 24 week course with two entry points each year (January and June). The next intake in 2015 is 22 June (with the course running until the 11th December).

The course provides students with the practical legal training they need for admission to the legal profession in Queensland.  Our course is driven and shaped by practising lawyers, many of whom are leaders in their fields. Students learn in a simulated legal firm, gaining experience in real work tasks. Students also gain hands-on experience on a four-week work placement in a law office, which QUT source. The course is designed to comply with the Law Admissions Consultative Council’s Competency Standards for entry-level lawyers and is approved by the Queensland Legal Practitioners Admissions Board.

If your applicant has an Overseas Law Degree: Before applying, the applicant’s law degree must be assessed by the Legal Practitioner Admissions Board Queensland (LPAB). The LPAB will advise if the applicant is required to study further law units (LPAB assessment may take up to 8 weeks). When the applicant has received the LPAB letter advising of the units required, please send a copy to QUT. The Faculty of Law will look at the units required and advise the quickest time study can be completed (including extra law units followed by the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice).
