COVID-19 (Coronavirus) advice

Tuesday 18 August 2020:

ACER and UNSW Law remain hopeful that the test centre sittings for the LAT 2020 on 29 September will proceed as planned. The safety of candidates and the broader community is paramount and LAT Test centres will operate with strict adherence to current public health orders.

We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation in NSW and the ACT and will inform candidates accordingly should there be any changes.
