Law in Practice

The LLB (Practice) Program is undertaken during the final 2 years of the law degree. Students in the program deal with real clients and their legal problems at the University of Newcastle Legal Centre (UNLC) and in externships.

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) degree you will be highly competitive in the marketplace. Our law graduates consistently earn starting salaries above the national average and are in demand with 94% of students from our Practice Program securing employment within four months of graduating.*

Law on the Beach

Each summer the Legal Centre encourages Novocastrians needing legal advice to tap into the services they offer through Law on the Beach.

Public interest cases

In addition to free legal advice sessions and ongoing case support, the Legal Centre and Newcastle Law School take on major cases, which have significant public interest value. In each of these cases, the contributions made by our law students are instrumental to the work being completed.
