Law for Legal Secretaries
In the new year it’s quite common to set goals for yourself – to want to improve your knowledge or competency in a certain area in order to get a better job is a popular one. As part of our range of services to professionals seeking further training, we’re pleased to say we’re expanding our CPD programme, enabling even more of you to improve your skills and employability throughout 2019.
With several new courses starting in the next few weeks, the first we’d like to tell you about is our Law for Legal Secretaries course. Anyone who is one will know that Legal Secretaries play a pivotal role in the efficient and smooth running of any law firm or department. This course is specifically aimed at legal secretaries (or people in associated roles) with some experience already, and who believe that a deeper knowledge of law basics will help them be better at their jobs. In particular, delegates might work in solicitor offices, barrister chambers, law courts and legal departments of larger firms, estate agents, insurance companies, or banks and building societies.
This course will give a basic understanding of a wide range of legal issues that may be encountered in the working environment, including specific terminology and protocol, giving delegates more confidence in the information they give, and filling in gaps in knowledge they may already have. It will also be a great way to pick up some useful nuggets of information to impress the bosses, and be a forum to ask any relevant questions in a safe environment.
This course will enable delegates to:
• Understand the distinction between civil and criminal law
• Understand the sources of law
• Critique methods of dispute resolution
• Identify types of civil obligation
• Explain the basics of Criminal law, Employment law and Property law
During the course, the following areas will also be covered:
• Case law, legislation and European law
• Courts, tribunals and arbitration
• Essentials of a contract, terms, remedies, tort, negligence, nuisance, trespass definitions
• Requirements of a crime, types of offences and sanctions
• The contract of employment, legislation, termination of employment
• Wills and inheritance
• Freehold and leasehold land
