Description

This subject encourages students to experience and reflect on the targeted graduate attributes developed by the Faculty of Law.

The subject covers the skills, practice areas and values required of a law student to be admitted to practise law as prescribed by the 'competency standards' set out in the Second Schedule to the Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules 2015. The subject assumes an understanding of disciplinary knowledge taught in core law subjects in a relevant degree. Students learn and practise the application of this knowledge through the development of skills and reflection in preparation for professional practice as an entry-level lawyer.

This subject is one of four subjects that constitute the Practical Legal Training (PLT) program. It is complemented by the three other PLT subjects: 75424 Legal and Professional Skills, 75422 Transactional Practice and 75411 Practical

Experience.

The subject has three components:

  1. civil litigation
  2. wills and estate practice, and
  3. family law practice.
