About the Organisation
The Legal Profession Admission Board (LPAB) offers a Diploma in Law Course which provides an affordable and accessible tertiary legal education. Designed to meet the needs of aspiring lawyers, the qualification is equivalent to a university law degree for the purpose of entry to the legal profession in Australia.

Through an enduring partnership formed more than half a century ago, the University of Sydney delivers tuition in the Course, while the LPAB manages student administration, enrolments and examinations. The LPAB is a self-funding statutory corporation which is also responsible for determining the eligibility and suitability of people seeking to be admitted as a lawyer in NSW.

All staff in the Office of the LPAB are employed by the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ). DCJ is the lead agency under the Stronger Communities Cluster, which is focussed on achieving safe, just, inclusive and resilient communities by providing services that are effective and responsive to community needs.
