Applying for admission to legal practice in Australia

If you’re an overseas legal practitioner interested in requalifying for legal practice in Australia, Southern Cross University's School of Law and Justice can assist you as an accredited Law School for admission to the Supreme Court of New South Wales. The units you choose to study with us meet accreditation requirements.

Follow these simple steps to apply for admission to legal practice in Australia.

 

Step 1

Apply to the Legal Profession Admission Board

Your legal qualifications must be assessed by the Legal Profession Admission Board for admission as a lawyer in the state of New South Wales. Should you be required to complete further subjects to satisfy academic requirements, the Board will advise you of those subjects. Further information is available at the NSW Government's Lawlink - Attorney General and Justice website.

 

Step 2

Complete your additional subjects

Once you have been advised about the subjects you are required to complete, contact Southern Cross University's School of Law and Justice Student Support Team at lawenquiry@scu.edu.au. The Student Support Team will assist you with a list of compatible units and teaching sessions offered by the University.
