Randeep Singh

Being at Leo's accelerates your learning curve and really gives you an edge in the workplace. I highly recommend the Leo Cussen PLT course for budding lawyers and those who might not quite have made up their minds just yet. It helped me make up mine.

Eugene Renard

The course exceeded my expectations on almost every level – the close-knit friendships that were formed, the support and leadership from my mentor and other staff was excellent and really bolstered my confidence stepping out on to the open job market and into the workforce.

Kevin Zhou

As an international student, I found my training at Leo Cussen set me up very well. The system of mentorship is what I would particularly like to highlight for future trainees. If a trainee can do well in listening to his or her mentor at Leo Cussen, they will also do well in listening to their supervising partner at work.

Supervised Legal Training

The program was very well run, with excellent opportunities to practise skills in a simulated and safe environment. It was very beneficial learning from barristers and judges with such a wealth of knowledge.

What stood out for me is the excellent advocacy training. The guest instructors and assessors, who are all senior advocates, gave me personal feedback on my performances in a number of different scenarios - this was invaluable in assisting me to develop my practical advocacy skills...

Alex Mould

WA Online full-time PLT

The practical hands-on aspect of the course, by running several different files, gave me an understanding of what it is like to be a lawyer. The day to day file work – from taking instructions, preparing a retainer and costs agreement, setting up trust and office ledgers, billing clients - was a really solid learning experience...

Ben Williams

WA Online full-time PLT

As a paralegal at a Perth CDB law firm, it was important for me to be able to find a PLT that would allow me to maintain my work performance whilst completing the PLT in the shortest possible time. I selected the WA Leo Cussen PLT 20 week course because it met those criteria and it did not disappoint. The PLT workload was a really good mix for me, it was manageable with my 4 days per week part-time workload...

Kerry Anne Eral

WA Online full-time PLT

The Leo team was very supportive, much more so than I expected. Whenever I had a question or needed feedback, my allocated mentor or the other pool of Leo mentors/staff supporting the WA PLT was always there to lend a hand.  They were very friendly and knowledgeable, and importantly to me promptly responded with their support...
