Academic Conduct Report for VLAB

If you have completed a Priestley subject at RMIT we will issue an Academic Conduct Report to support your application for admission as an Australian Lawyer.

Content of the Academic Conduct Report

An Academic Conduct Report covers all your studies at RMIT and is comprised of:

  • a letter advising whether there are any records or reports of concerning behaviours during your enrolment at RMIT, and
  • your transcript (for all enrolments).

The report is emailed to the Victorian Legal Admissions Board (VLAB).

How long does it take for an Academic Conduct Report to be issued?

Please allow at least three weeks (excluding University holidays) for us to submit your report. Your report will take up to three weeks from the date your request is complete —we will issue it earlier if possible.

Please also note the following information which may impact your decision when to request your report:

  • Please ensure all RMIT course results (and credit) have been finalised and published.
  • We close for approximately two weeks at Christmas-New Year and one week at Easter (March/April).
  • Deadlines published on the Victorian Legal Admissions Board's Admission calendar.
  • The Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules 2015, clause 19 (2), state that the report must be prepared within 6 months before the application is made.
  • RMIT will provide you with one free Academic Conduct Report.
