Work-integrated learning in business and law courses at Deakin
Find out how work experience can make all the difference when you graduate and start applying for jobs.
Our legal internships help you understand certain aspects of legal practice and deepen your theoretical knowledge and critical thinking skills while working in a legal environment.
During your legal placement you’ll get experience in these areas of legal practice:
- taking instructions and client interviewing
- fact finding
- alternative dispute resolution and negotiation
- providing advice and counselling of a legal nature
- legal research and problem-solving
- the litigation process
At the end of the internship, you’ll gain one credit point towards your degree and 15 days towards your professional experience requirements.
Are you, or your organisation, interested in partnering with Deakin Law School to potentially host our law students?
The Law Clinics started with the idea that we’ve got to make better lawyers, more relevant lawyers. We’ve got to make lawyers that will solve the problems of tomorrow.
