Tasmanian Legal Practice Course
Develop the essential knowledge, values, attitude and skills required for professional legal practice.
The Tasmanian Legal Practice Course is a postgraduate professional legal training program whose graduates are eligible to apply for admission as legal practitioners. As a graduate, you are also awarded a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from the University of Tasmania.
The TLPC is delivered by the Centre for Legal Studies at the Hunter Street campus at Hobart’s waterfront. It offers a unique and practical experience unlike any other professional legal training program with an emphasis on face-to-face engagement with the legal industry.
This challenging course provides invaluable skills whether you intend to use them practicing law or in another professional role. You may enrol as a pathway to admission for legal practice; to help you decide if you want to practice law; or to keep your career options open.
