The Juris Doctor in combination with the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice will satisfy the academic and practical requirements for admission to the legal profession under the rules of the Legal Practitioners’ Education and Admission Council 2004.
This course is approved by the Legal Practitioners Education and Admission Council.
Graduates of the Juris Doctor and Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice will qualify to practise as barristers and solicitors, and work in law firms, government, private-sector organisations, policy development, administration, social justice and human rights, in Australia and internationally.
Graduates who choose not to complete the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice will not be eligible to gain admission to the legal profession. However, Juris Doctor graduates will be highly competitive in the business and corporate sector, as well as in national and international non-government organisations, and in government departments and political bodies.
