Established in 1972, Leo Cussen Centre for Law continues to be recognised as a centre of excellence for practical legal training and ongoing professional development for entry-level lawyers through to senior legal practitioners. Our training programs are practical and personalised, highly respected by the legal profession and taught by leading legal professionals.

We offer both onsite (full-time) and online (part-time and full-time) practical training for law graduates seeking admission to the legal profession through our Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, taught from our training facilities in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.

The courses run for 24 weeks and for our onsite trainees we find professional placements for them. In our online courses (part-time and full-time), trainees predominantly train online with a designated mentor, along with 16 days onsite. There are two intakes per year, in January and July.

At Leo Cussen, you will build practical legal skills and gain the confidence to make choices about your career. Our graduates work in a variety of professional environments in Australia and overseas including:

  • Private legal practice
  • In House legal practice
  • Community and legal aid practice
  • Government
  • Policy & Research
  • Politics
  • Business
  • And many more..

Our courses are designed for law graduates seeking to apply for admission to practise law in all Australia jurisdictions.

The PTC is founded on the principle of ‘learning by doing’, with no exams. It is designed to help you actively achieve understanding and competence in the National Competency Standards for Entry Level Lawyers.

If you are on an Overseas Student visa, the Onsite PTC is the right course for you. If you are on another form of visa you may still have the choice of the Online PTC as well as the Onsite PTC.

At Leo Cussen you’ll work with graduates from every Victorian university and from interstate and extend your professional network as you train.

FEE-HELP is available.
