Beyond Theory

Starship was asked to revitalise a tired brand and launch a new era for the Leo Cussen Centre for Law and help them move from a state-government funded institute to a self-funded national model. Leo Cussen teaches lawyers all the practical things they need to know besides the theory. It was established in 1972 by an Act of Parliament as Leo Cussen Institute and is now an independent, non-profit centre of excellence for practical legal training and ongoing professional development for entry-level lawyers through to senior legal practitioners. It provides a practical training course for law graduates designed to bridge the gap between university and legal practice, a traineeship program, a large range of Continuing Professional Development programs for practising lawyers and other professionals, as well as publications.
