The ACICIS Law Professional Practicum (LPP) will be offered virtually in Summer 2022. This program provides students with a unique opportunity to gain professional experience and establish networks in Indonesia.

Students will undertake online Indonesian language and cultural classes, and seminars about Indonesia’s legal industry. Students will complete a virtual professional placement (160-hour internship) with an Indonesian or international firm (or with an individual practitioner) operating in Indonesia. No background in Indonesian language is required to participate in this program.

Why Indonesia? 

Indonesia will be a key economic partner in Australia’s future as they are expected to become the fourth largest economy in the world. With links in trade, tourism and commerce, it is important to understand their complex legal system. Get to know our nearest neighbour!
