- About Deakin
It is the student's responsibility to find a suitable professional experience placement. In line with Deakin University policy, before starting a professional experience placement at your host organisation, you are required to obtain pre-approval from the School of Law. This application serves two important purposes.
1. You will obtain free coverage under the Deakin University liability insurance policy
2. You will obtain confirmation that your placement will be counted toward your compulsory professional experience requirement.
How to Apply
Fax 03 5227 2151
Your application must be approved by the School of Law prior to commencing your placement. Please allow 3 weeks for the processing of your application. Both the student and the host organisation will be advised of the outcome of the application by email.
Students are required to obtain pre-approval for each host organisation (or placement). Therefore, if you wish to make-up your 30 days at three different organisations (eg 10 days at each organisation) you will need to submit three separate Professional Experience Pre-Approval Application Forms [184KB PDF].
