The Practical Legal Training (PLT) Work Experience Program will run during 2019.
Participants in the program will work under the supervision of the Legal Practice Development division and an appointed Legal Aid WA lawyer to complete tasks in the workplace.
Hours are flexible and may be completed as a block or over a number of weeks, but must be completed within a maximum period of six months. Applicants should express a preference for intake in the first or second half of 2019.
To be eligible for the program, applicants must be law graduates or completing their final year of a law degree in 2018, and seeking to complete work experience hours as part of their practical legal training requirements.
Applicants who have already been admitted to legal practice will not be accepted. A conflict of interest check will also apply.
Regional placements may be available, however Legal Aid WA will not cover any travel or accommodation costs associated with these placements.
