Career opportunities

The Juris Doctor is a pathway to legal practice as a barrister and solicitor in a range of settings, including law firms, in-house counsel and community legal centres. Graduates are also highly competitive in a range of other careers outside of law including government, commerce, consulting and advising, public administration, social justice and human rights, as leaders across the globe.

Professional recognition

To satisfy both the academic and practical requirements underpinning eligibility to be admitted as a barrister and solicitor in the State of South Australia graduates of this degree must also complete a practical legal training course; admission to practice in other States and Territories in Australia would normally be possible on completion of both courses but is formally subject to the requirements in place in those jurisdictions.
