To be admitted to practise in Australia, however, graduates must complete further practical legal training. Students intending to seek admission to practise are strongly advised to seek advice from the admitting authority in the relevant jurisdiction. In South Australia the University of Adelaide and the Law Society of South Australia provide practical legal training through their Graduate Diploma and Legal Practice course. Upon graduation from the Bachelor of Laws and completion of the Graduate Diploma and Legal Practice, students are eligible to be admitted to the Supreme Court of South Australia (with a restricted practising certificate). Once admitted, practitioners may apply for admission in any other Australian jurisdiction.
