To practice as a lawyer in Australia you need to complete your Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP) - also referred to as Practical Legal Training, or PLT - before you can apply to be admitted as a legal practitioner. (When you see PLT or GDLP, note that these terms are used interchangeably and refer to the same course).
