Becoming a Practitioner: Choose a start date

The duration of the GDLP is as little as six months full time, and the program is delivered almost entirely online. The first step on your pathway to practice is a four day face-to-face introductory course taught by practising lawyers and barristers in one of several locations around Australia. This course, Becoming a Practitioner (BAP), is an introduction to lawyers’ skills and is preparation for the rest of the GDLP program.
