    Posted: 12/February/2018 at 12:29
I am an overseas qualified lawyer and had completed my legal degree in India. I am looking to get my qualifications assessed by LPAB for admission to Australian Legal profession. I was working as a corporate lawyer with a banking company in India and have also been working in the legal department of a bank in Sydney for over an year now. Will such experience qualify me for any exemption from certain courses? Will I still be required to do practical legal training (PLT) given that I am already working in the legal department? Tips from anyone who has gone through the process before will be really helpful. Thanks!
