Our Legal Secretaries Diploma course will provide you with the legal knowledge and practical skills that you need to work as a Legal Secretary. It is comprehensive, enjoyable and very popular. It is a recognised qualification within the legal industry and many law firms enrol their staff on our course.

The aims of the Institute are:

* To provide recognised legal secretarial qualifications
* To offer help, support, advice and guidance to trainee and experienced Legal Secretaries
* To promote professional recognition of our Members through the quality of their experience, qualifications, standards, skills and expertise
* To encourage Members to advance their skills through continuing professional development
* To unite Legal Secretaries and PAs at all levels of experience

The Roles of a Legal Secretary:
Legal Secretaries assist in the smooth running of law firms by giving administrative support to Lawyers. They are significant members of a team of professionals who work together. The work of a Legal Secretary varies and can be very interesting. They deal with a wide range of challenging legal and business issues, combining their skills with modern technology.

Law firms can specialise in areas such as Criminal Law or Conveyancing, whilst others will deal with a wider range of fields such as Civil Litigation, Matrimonial and Civil Partnership Law, Corporate Law or Probate and Administration, to name but a few.

A Legal Secretary should have excellent secretarial skills with a knowledge of law and legal procedures. They must be computer literate and have a good standard of English. Good communication skills are essential for dealing with clients and meeting deadlines.

General duties of a Legal Secretary can include:

* Preparing and typing letters, legal forms and documents
* Organising and filing correspondence, legal forms and documents
* Answering telephone calls and taking accurate messages
* Compiling letters or legal documents from dictation
* Preparing Court forms and statements
* Attending Court
* Arranging appointments and meetings
* Liaising with clients
* Sending e-mails and using the Internet

Legal Personal Assistants:

Legal Personal Assistants can perform very similar work to Legal Secretaries, as they have the same legal knowledge and skills, but they work for just one person in a firm. They furnish clients with high quality services and can be the first point of contact, making decisions on behalf of their boss.

Legal PAs take on more responsibility through senior administrative tasks such as marketing or dealing with accounts and budgets. They act in a personal way for their boss and are responsible for managing their personal timetable and diary, together with organising events, engagements and making travel arrangements. Legal PAs are highly depended on by their boss and need to be reliable and committed.


Legal Secretaries Diploma. Evening Courses and Online Courses available. Subjects covered include The English Legal System; The Law of Contract; The Law of Tort; Civil Litigation, Land Law and Conveyancing, Wills, Probate and Adminsitration and Family Law as well as general legal secretarial procedures and a glossary of legal terminology. Please note that our evening courses are held at Regents College, Regents Park, London but you must contact our head office to request information or enrol.

We have a wide range of Students of all ages, nationalities and levels of experience. If you have secretarial skills and are computer literate, then this course is perfect for you.
