Permission to have concurrent enrolment in the Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP)
The Australian National University is one institution offering a GDLP. Under its rules you may apply to enrol in the GDLP provided you have completed at least 2 years (or equivalent) of your LLB or JD degree and you have a letter from the Sub-Dean of your institution indicating that there is no objection to you applying for concurrent enrolment in the GDLP.
At UNE the equivalent to the Sub-Dean is the Course Co-ordinator. We have no objection to students enrolling in the GDLP provided that:
- You have completed at least 96 credit points of law units; and
- You accept completion of your LLB as first priority—UNE will not accept enrolment in the GDLP as excusing any failure to attend any examination, or submit any assessment item; and
- You do not have a full load of units (i.e. not doing 2 units if part time, or 4 units if full time) in the relevant teaching period; or
- You do have a full load of units in the relevant teaching period, but you meet the criteria for over-enrolment.)
Applications should be made through AskUNE, indicating that you are seeking permission from the course coordinator and addressing the criteria mentioned in the above bullet points.
