With three major law schools and over 4,200 legal practitioners currently practising, South Australia boasts a strong fraternity of lawyers and solicitors.

Among these practitioners are graduate lawyers – young professionals who have recently finished their university studies and completed their Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, a journey that can take more than six years. These positions are highly competitive and are awarded only to top graduates, with many firms running programs to attract budding lawyers.
