Practice Management Course for NSW Legal Practitioners

Condition 3 is a discretionary condition imposed pursuant to s 53 of the Legal Profession Uniform Law (NSW) and Rule 16(b)(ii) of the Legal Profession Uniform General Rules 2015. If a practitioners’ practising certificate is held subject to this condition, they must complete a Practice Management Course (PMC) before being able to practice as a principal of a law practice. 

Why choose PMC Plus?

PMC Plus is a distinctive program designed for legal practitioners practising in New South Wales who wish to move to the next stage of their career. The course conforms with the Practice Management Course Guidelines for New South Wales published by The Law Society of New South Wales and has been designed for legal practitioners, that have at least two years of supervision. The flexible delivery of the course equips legal practitioners with future-focused content in a format that is accessible for busy practitioners.


PMC Plus is designed to take a learner approximately 30 hours to complete. The course is made up of three components: online modules (19.5hours), three webinars (3hours) and a one-day face to face intensive (7.5hours).

The Leadership Electives offer learners an opportunity to obtain an additional Leadership nano-credential by completing a Leadership Intensive and/or Leadership Coaching.
