Admission to practice: disciplinary reports

Warning to students of consequences of cheating or general misconduct

Students should note that a domestic applicant applying for admission to practise law in Victoria is required by the Admission Rules 2008 to provide to the Board of Examiners:

(1.) a report from the University disclosing any disciplinary action taken against the student during the course (including any finding under the University Discipline Statute that the student has cheated in an assessment); and

(2.) an affidavit stating that the applicant has made full written disclosure of "every matter which a reasonable applicant would consider that the Board of Examiners might regard as not being favourable to the applicant". This may include an incident of academic or general misconduct, even if it did not lead to disciplinary action.

The Board of Examiners will consider these matters in assessing whether the applicant is a "fit and proper person to be admitted to the legal profession".


The Arts (Honours) component requires that students complete 48 points of specified study including a research thesis.

The Bachelor of Laws component requires that students complete 156 points of study, including units not yet completed as part of the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws program. Students must also refer to 'Bachelor of Laws - basic course structure' at
