Be part of something bigger!

In 2015, we’re proud to introduce the Master of Legal Practice (MLP) featuring the Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP).

Bringing a new level of choice to professional legal training, the MLP gives you the option after completing the Admission to Practice courses (GDLP component) to be admitted to practice and exit with a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice after a minimum of six months or continue with your study after admission and graduate with a Master of Legal Practice – you have two years to make this decision.

Whatever choice you make, you’ll get the benefits of flexible online study, allowing you to balance study with work or personal commitments, and a qualification from one of Australia’s highest ranked universities and home to one of the world’s top 15 law schools.

Admission to practice

To practise law in Australia, you must complete professional legal training (PLT). 

Designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge you’ll need as a lawyer, professional legal training builds on your undergraduate law degree or Juris Doctor, and enables you to be admitted as a lawyer across Australia.

After becoming eligible for admission, whether you choose to exit with the GDLP  – or continue and graduate with the MLP – you’ll be part of ANU, one of Australia’s highest ranked universities.
