The Adelaide GDLP is run by the Law Society of South Australia in conjunction with the University of Adelaide. We have recently introduced a full online program along side our face to face program.

Students completing the GDLP with the Law Society of South Australia and the University of Adelaide will cover three distinct components:

  1. The completion of six mandatory subjects covering a number of areas of law, as well as two electives of a student’s choice;
  2. Three weeks (105 hours) of legal placement which must be undertaken while enrolled in the GDLP;
  3. The accrual of five Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

The three components can be completed in any order and over a period as little as 20 weeks. You can, subject to conditions and approval, study the GDLP concurrently with your LLB.

Our program is flexible!

  • You can complete your GDLP in as little as 20 weeks and we can develop a timetable that works for you!
  • Study face to face, online or a mixture of both!
  • There is no order you must complete your subjects – it’s a matter of tailoring your study to suit you!
  • You can complete your placement full time or part time.
