AngieMM Posted September 7, 2020 Report Share Posted September 7, 2020 Hi everyone I'm new to this site and I'm posting in the hopes that someone might be able to confirm that I'm on the right track please... My husband and I plan to emigrate in 2022. I am in my final year of an LLB at UCT and will send my degree off to the NSW authorities next year to have it assessed. I also plan to do the local LEAD course at some stage next year as I think this might help give me some credits towards the Aussie PLT certificate, if I'm not mistaken. Once I receive the feedback on which subjects I need to take to convert my qualification (both degree and PLT), I plan to do those remotely in SA before we leave. Am I correct in understanding that once I have done these courses and whatever elements of the PLT that are then outstanding I may then apply to be admitted in NSW? I would obviously need to be admitted before applying for a 189 visa but in the interim I think I could travel on my husband's 189. And then in terms of job prospects in Aus, are entry level solicitor jobs like hen's teeth or is this doable? I do also hold a Bachelor of Business Science degree and was a brand manager in my previous life before embarking on my legal studies. Any advice on this topic would be greatly appreciated. I know this isn't the easiest thing we're attempting to do but we're quite determined to make it work. Thanks, Angie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
