Law Practice Management Course
Date: 19 October - 4 November 2022
Members: $1,575 | Non-Members: $1,775

The Society’s Law Practice Management Course was accredited by LPEAC on 27/05/2021.
Our course has been specifically designed for legal practitioners taking the step to becoming law practice principals, whether as sole practitioners, partners or directors of law practices. 

Please note: This will be the final course offered by the Law Society in 2022. If you are required to complete the course by December 2022, please register for this course as soon as possible to ensure you have a place.

The course will provide instruction and guidance on a range of law practice management issues from regulatory requirements to financial and risk management. The Course presenters are all experts in their fields. Trust accounting, ethics and risk management modules are presented by Law Society staff who have first-hand experience in the obligations and the needs of the South Australian legal profession. The course also covers business planning, marketing and leadership. 


This course will be taught via a mixture of in-person and online sessions, over several days at the Law Society offices and via Zoom. There are also three online modules that can be completed prior to the formal commencement of the course.

There are several marked assessments throughout the course where participants must demonstrate competency, as per LPEAC requirements.

Once you have registered, you will be contacted and provided with login details to access the course materials.
Places in each course are limited, so please register as soon as possible.
