Practical Legal Training with Leo Cussen
Once you’ve completed your legal degree, which gives you an understanding of laws and the legal system, you then need to learn how to work effectively within that system. This extra stage is a requirement to becoming a lawyer, and is known as Practical Legal Training, or PLT. Griffith University has partnered with Leo Cussen to ensure that whatever your legal career aspirations may be, you have a premium and practical PLT pathway to admission as an Australian Lawyer.
Leo Cussen’s Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP) immerses you in your own simulated legal practice, enabling you to gain experience across seven different areas of legal practice, so you can truly craft your career.
Griffith has over 200 partner institutions in 38 countries offering unique opportunities—just pick a destination. You can complete part of your degree overseas and experience a different perspective on your legal studies. Studying overseas allow you to challenge yourself, impress potential employers, learn a new language, make lasting connections with new friends and expand your horizons beyond Australia.
