Early Commencement of Practical Legal Training

The Legal Practitioners Education and Admission Council (LPEAC) requires that students complete their academic qualifications for admission prior to commencing PLT.

Students who want to commence PLT before completion of their academic requirements for admission must apply to the Board of Examiners for exemption prior to enrolling in a PLT course.

The Guide to making an application for exemption to the Board of Examiners is available here, and a template Statutory Declaration, is available here.
