Practicum Courses

Practicum courses enable students to gain professional skills whilst dealing with real world problems. Our clinical courses are hosted and conducted in an industry and/or community, whereas our practicum courses are all delivered on-campus. Guided by an industry professional, students are presented with scenarios and must apply real-life integrated learning skills to find a solution in a highly engaging simulation.

Students interested in a law clinic should visit the Clinical Courses page.

  • Be a current ANU Bachelor of Laws (LLB (Hons)) or Juris Doctor (JD) student
  • Meet the course pre-requisites for the clinic you wish to undertake

The purpose of the Environmental Justice Practicum is to introduce participants to collaborative working and learning across disciplines in the environmental context.

This course will involve learning theory from both disciplines, practical application, reflection and working in cross-disciplinary teams.

This will be an intensive course run on-campus from 29 January to 10 February 2024, from 9-5pm. Students interested in this course are required to attend every day in person.
