Founder & Director Wendy Souter:
Coming from a legal background where Wendy Souter worked for many years in all aspects of law, she saw the need to create a facility allowing general secretaries to qualify and work as Legal Secretaries. So in 1988 she created the Legal Secretary Courses and set up her Legal Secretary Training College in London, making us one of the oldest corporate educational institutions in the UK.

Online Legal Secretary & Paralegal Courses:
Our courses are suitable for Postgraduates, Undergraduates, Legal Clerks, Secretaries, Legal Secretaries, Court Clerks and those wishing to work within the legal profession. All lessons are accessible to students throughout the UK, Europe, USA & Worldwide.

Student Testimonials:

"Since obtaining my diploma with OTC, this, with my work experience, has enabled me to become a Fellow of the Institute of Paralegals. I would thoroughly recommend the OTC training programme. The lectures are easy to understand, well presented and convenient. Anyone wishing to take the leap from Secretary to Fee Earner, this is definitely the route to take. I cannot thank all those involved with OTC enough for their help and enthusiasm."

"Thank you so much. I have thoroughly enjoyed studying with you and I will be in touch in due course to study with you again soon."

- OTC Student

"I was aware that there were jobs out there, I did not expect to get a job at such as good salary for my age and experience. Obviously this has a lot to do with your course. Quite a few interviewers said how impressed they were with the course, and having my stuff with me on a couple of interviews helped to show them what was being done. Once again, thank you for making the course so enjoyable and easy to learn."
