Overseas Qualified Lawyers

If you are an international lawyer seeking admission to legal practice in Australia, you need to have your overseas legal qualification assessed by the Legal Profession Admission Board (LPAB).

To receive a study plan that fulfils LPAB requirements from courses offered by UTS, please email a scanned copy of your LPAB assessment to: law@uts.edu.au
