"I was working full-time before commencing this postgraduate course and have continued to work full-time throughout the course. University of Adelaide Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice program offered a more practical, hands on approach to postgraduate legal study The Practical Legal Training aspect of this program was an incredible experience. I completed mine at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution. An insight into this workplace for six weeks has helped me shape my career path, put me in touch with some inspiring practitioners and realise that my passion is criminal prosecution."
