Credit for student organised interstate and international placements

Enrolling for either LAW4803 Clinical Placement or LAW4810/LAW5057 Work Integrated Learning Project for self-sourced interstate or international placements consists of the below conditions and instructions. Applicants are advised to understand the requirements of this process before submitting an application.

Students are required to understand the following conditions attached to the Faculty's approval process:

  • Applications must be received a minimum of four weeks prior to the project or placement commencing, in order for the Faculty to properly consider the application and make contact with the industry partner.
  • You cannot be enrolled for LAW4810/LAW5057 Work Integrated Learning Project or LAW4803 Clinical Placement if you are being paid an income by the industry partner for the project / placement.
  • You may not be eligible for LAW4803 if your placement is provided under an already existing clerkship program with an organisation or Industry partner in Australia. This is because the industry partner’s program may have different selection criteria and different objectives to ours. It is up to the CE to make that decision based on the information provided in the application and if required, further discussion with the partner about the validity of the placement for credit.
  • You cannot receive credit for LAW4810/LAW5057 Work Integrated Learning Project or LAW4803 Clinical Placement retrospectively.
