Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) units can be claimed for postgraduate study considered relevant to your immediate or long-term needs in relation to your professional development and legal practice. Our offering of close to 100 courses each year provide many opportunities for legal practitioners to meet MCLE unit requirements as well as engaging in in-depth study of a particular area of law. Enrolment in a full course on a non-award basis and completing the assessment can meet MCLE requirements as well as award of academic credit which may be recognised in the form of advanced standing for postgraduate study later. Our courses are taught by leading practitioners, judges and academic experts.
We offer a one day course which provides participants with the fundamentals of computerised legal research, as well as efficient and effective research techniques for conducting legal research on-line.
