It’s tough to know how to get from graduate to admission. The College of Law has made it easy with the step-by-step process and supportive framework.

QUT Practical Legal Training

QUT has the real world Practical Legal Training (PLT) you need for admission to the legal profession. Our course provides you with:

  • Real–world experience: In our PLT you’ll complete the types of tasks that real-life lawyers do. You’ll build a portfolio of real-world know-how and skills, including interviewing and negotiating, drafting legal documents and executing property, litigation, and commercial transactions and proceedings.
  • Firm connections: QUT has established connections with over 350 placement providers. This means you’ll get the experience and the connections you need.
  • Four-week placements: Gain hands-on experience with a placement in a law office that we can source for you. Some of our students secure full time work from the connections made during these placements. If you are already working in a law office, you may be eligible to claim credit for your real-life legal work.
  • Flexible study: We have four intakes per year – in January, February, July and August. Choose to study full time on campus, or full time or part time off campus (external). Each intake has a compulsory five-day attendance school on campus.
