The PTC is founded on the principle of ‘learning by doing’. 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.

The PTC (Onsite and Online) is a 24-week course of training, including a three-week professional placement, with two intakes per year.
