This Legal Secretary or Legal PA Course is designed to provide the student with further understanding of work within a legal office, together with the practical experience of performing a wide range of routine functions which are
required of a legal secretary at level 3.

This course also provides the opportunity to have internationally recognised legal training whilst gaining valuable on-the- job experience.

The CILEX Level 3 Legal Secretaries Certificate Course provides students with intermediate skills and knowledge needed to work within a legal secretarial role., and is the next level which students will embark upon after Level 2. This course will help bring legal secretaries a step closer to their ideal careers with the added benefit of an additonal career choice to train further and perhaps eventually becoming solicitors themselves.

Course dates and duration

Due to the thoroughness of this course, students should allow up to six months to complete this level comfortably. This Course can either be undertaken on its own or can be combined with other courses i.e. MS Office; touch-typing; audio-typing etc. Where additional MS Office or typing training elements are bolted onto the course, it may be started early to accelerate the students learning progress; just ask about this or call in.

The course is structured to provide students with a stimulating and effective mode of study under the guidance of a qualified tutor. Where students are unable to attend classroom based tuition, training is available on distance
learning or online.

This Course is currently offered on a flexi-learning basis and thus provides students with a high
degree of flexibility, enabling them to juggle both a busy lifestyle and their studies together. This means that students can study within the comforts of their own home, with the added benefit of one-to-one tutor guidance as and when needed.

I really enjoyed the course, and would definitley recommend this course to anyone wanting to do a good legal secretary course.

The most valuable skill learnt is typing. Throughought the course I have had the opportunity to develop speed and accuracy in my typing skills. I most enjoyed researching the subject of law and discovering the basics.

When I started the course I wasn't sure what to expect as I had never done anything like that before. The way in which the course is designed and the way that people who work here, was very good and clear. When I needed help I got it and I did not feel that I was on my own.
