The RMIT LSS would like to thank the Leo Cussen Centre for Law for their generous sponsorship in 2017, in particular, their contributions to our publications and biannual information sessions about their Practical Training Course.
About the Leo Cussen Practical Training Course The Leo Cussen Practical Training Course (PTC) has been training law graduates for admission to the legal profession for over 40 years. They are recognised by legal employers for providing comprehensive and high quality training for entry-level lawyers.
At Leo Cussen you learn how to practise law in a friendly and stimulating environment. You learn about the realities of legal practice from leading professionals who support and encourage your development as a lawyer. 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. At the same time, the PTC gives you further opportunities to develop your career options.
When you satisfactorily complete the PTC you are entitled to apply for admission to legal practice in Victoria with reciprocal admission in other Australian states.
