​Law Admissions Consultative Committee (LACC)

The Law Admissions Consultative Committee's main role is to forge consensus nationally between the bodies represented by its members on admission and admission-related matters. 

The LACC comprises a Chair, together with 11 members who are representatives of the Law Admitting Authority of each of the eight Australian jurisdictions, the Committee of Australian Law Deans (CALD), the Australasian Professional Legal Education Council (APLEC) and the Law Council of Australia (LCA). It is generally responsible to the Council of Chief Justices of Australia and New Zealand (CCJ), which appoints the Chair. LACC is not a committee of the CCJ or of the LSC. The LSC provides secretariat services to LACC.

  • Hon Acting Justice Arthur Emmett AO (Chair)
  • Mr Peter Garrisson AM SC                ACT
  • Hon Justice Patricia Henry                NSW
