Legal Aid’s Practical Legal Training (PLT) program is aimed at law graduates who are required to complete practical work experience as part of an external practical legal training course.
Participants in the PLT program will be placed in a section of Legal Aid WA’s Perth office where they will work under the supervision of the Legal Practice Development Division and an appointed solicitor to complete workplace tasks.
Regional placements may also be available, however Legal Aid WA will not cover any travel or accommodation costs associated with these placements.
Placements are to commence in the second half of 2020.
Hours are flexible and placements may be undertaken on a full-time or part-time basis, but must be completed within a maximum period of six months.
To be eligible for the program, applicants must be law graduates or final year law students expecting to graduate mid-year in 2020.
Applicants who have already been admitted to legal practice will not be accepted.
Acceptance to Legal Aid’s PLT program is conditional upon enrolment in an approved practical legal training course. A conflict of interest check will also apply.
The following dates apply to the PLT Work Experience Program recruitment and selection process for 2020:
