This project introduces law graduates seeking Professional Legal Training (PLT) placements, to legal assistance services in regional, rural and remote Australia. Law graduates provide valuable help to regional communities, whilst being supervised by an experienced Solicitor.

All students that applied prior to this time have been placed. NACLC is currently reviewing the program and considering options for its continuation.

Under the project, four regional coordinators were employed to work with the publicly funded legal profession in North West Queensland, Northern Territory, South Australia and Western New South Wales. They focused on recruitment and retention strategies. Three have finished their work and the fourth remains in Western New South Wales. The aim is to work closely with the private legal profession and regional law society to provide support.
