This 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, 75423 Litigation and Estate Practice and 75411 Practical Experience.

This subject covers the law, practice, procedure and skills to enable students to: conduct and advise on property transactions such as conveying torrens title and strata title residential property; advise on, create and release securities; advise on, create and transfer leases; identify revenue issues of property transactions; and advise on land use, powers of attorneys, residential tenancies and options. Students also apply their knowledge and skills to advise clients on, and conduct client matters in, commercial transactions such as: the sale and purchase of a business; set up and advise on business structures and the continuing obligations in relation to those structures; identify revenue implications of commercial transactions and refer clients to appropriate expert advisers; and advise on loans, securities and financing arrangements for commercial transactions. Students draft relevant documents and analyse clients' problems in these areas of the law, as well as offering options and solutions.
