College of Law PLT

The College of Law – Practical Legal Training Program

The College of Law sets the standard for Practical Legal Training (PLT) in Australia. The College is Australia’s largest provider of PLT, with courses offered in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra.

While we have a national approach which reflects an increasingly national profession, our course materials and lecturers are state-based to ensure that local variations in practice are incorporated into our programs. You get the best of both worlds.
