  • Students' results in previous units. Generally, places will only be given to high performing students.
  • How close the student is to completing their degree. Preference is given to students who would be completing Professional Practice towards the end of their degree, and who have not yet completed another placement for example LAW4803, LAW4811 or LAW4330
  • How many hours of paid work the student is doing. If a student is doing more than 20 hours per week of paid work, then it normally they would not be accepted into the unit. Students may be contacted to discuss this further regarding flexibility.
  • How many other units would be taken with Professional Practice. If the student is doing more than two other units as well as Professional Practice, they would normally not be accepted into the unit.
  • If a student speaks languages other than English.
  • If a student has had relevant community sector experience.
