This page provides maps of the Australian Competency Standards for Entry Level Lawyers, which is the framework used for Practical Legal Training in most jurisdictions.
This first map gives you an overview. The competencies are divided under 3 main headings, “Skills”, “Practice Areas”, and “Values.
This map shows each of the competencies under the main headings.
Each of the competencies are broken down into “Elements”, and each element have set performance criteria. For ease of comprehension, I have set out only the elements and have excluded the performance criteria.
Watch this Space…
The Competency Standards are to be reviewed and changes are possible in the next year or so.
I hope to create a more dynamic and interactive concept map of the competencies and their elements in the future.
