About Juris Doctor/Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at University of Newcastle, Australia

Newcastle Law School’s Juris Doctor (JD) and the embedded Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP) will not only open doors to employment as a lawyer, it will provide you with professional skills and attributes that are in high demand in other industries and professions.

At most other law schools, once you finish your JD you must then undertake practical legal training and supervised legal workplace experience before you can apply to be a lawyer. Our JD/GDLP combines all three so that you can be ready to practise law after three years of full time study, with no need for further supervision or training before you start your legal career.

The JD/GDLP is not only accredited in Australia; with some further study it can help qualify you to practise law in a number of other common law countries, including Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
