Thinking of enrolling in Practical Legal Training? Enrolments in our 2023 intakes are filling fast.
When you enrol at Leo Cussen, you’re given complete flexibility with options to defer, no pre-payment, and you can enrol while you’re still at uni.
Need more information to make an informed decision? Here are answers to some of the questions we get asked by law grads about our PLT program.
Do I need to graduate from university before enrolling in PLT?
No, you can enrol and start your PLT before you’ve finished your law degree.
If you want to start your PLT while you finish your law degree, you’ll need to have completed all your Priestly 11 subjects and have only one or two electives left.
By enrolling early, you’ll secure your place and avoid missing out.
What do I have to pay when I submit my enrolment?
If you have access to FEE-HELP, you can pay all or part of your tuition fees with the loan. If you’re paying the fees privately, you won’t need to pay any fees until your enrolment is accepted.
Once you’re accepted a part tuition payment of $500 is required to secure your place in your chosen PLT program.
Payment plans may be available to those without access to FEE-HELP.
What are the fees for 2023?
The program fees for 2023 are:
Domestic students: $10,990
International students: $15,990
If you wish to have your mandatory professional placement organised by Leo Cussen, a fee of $630 applies, and can be added to FEE-HELP, if you’re eligible.
Can I defer after I’ve enrolled?
Yes, if you wish to defer after you’ve been offered a PLT place, you can contact the Leo Cussen enrolment team to make an application to defer and start at a later date.
What qualification will I receive after completing my PLT?
The program qualifies you with a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP) and eligibility to apply for Admission to the legal profession in any Australian state or territory.
How long does PLT take?
Leo Cussen’s PLT program can be completed both full-time or part-time.
