ANU is getting out of practical legal training – as UNSW is getting in
UNSW law dean George Williams announces the university will provide “practical legal training,” to qualify graduates for practice, starting next year. The course consists of five days of in-person workshops and 19 weeks of on-line learning with “practitioner mentors,” “providing structured support”.
Last month ANU announced it will close its School of Legal Practice (CMM August 9). Campus observers suggest university management do not think it can be competitive against private providers. Not so at UNSW, which is charging $10 800 tuition.
