Practical legal training

During university semester 36 students attend the Centre as part of their clinical legal education courses therefore, KLC runs a very limited PLT program during breaks between semesters.

We only take on 2 to 3 students at a time and these students must have completed one of our clinical courses.

PLT students work with KLC solicitors on client files covering a wide range of civil law matters. The role of these students encompasses interviewing clients, drafting of letters and legal documents, research and in some cases, advocacy. Students also have the opportunity to work on law reform and policy projects. KLC conducts advice evenings twice a week from 6pm to 9pm and students will be expected to attend some of these sessions. All PLT students are rostered on to manage the front office for a day and half of each week of their time with us. This role is an important one for the Centre and gives students the opportunity to learn about dealing with a large number of potential clients as well as an insight into the whole community sector. To apply, fill in and submit the Application to do Practical Legal Training form below. Please also provide us with a copy of your CV. Applications without both the completed application form and CV will not be considered. Your application will be considered by our staff and you will be advised of our decision shortly thereafter. KLC's ability to take on PLT students is limited by its resources so we recommend that you also consider applying at other community legal centres, Legal Aid and law firms.
