Legal Assistants continue to play a vital role in law firms or legal departments of corporate companies.  With their typing abilities, knowledge of legal procedures, excellent secretarial expertise and computer literacy, they ensure that support to barristers & Solicitors and paralegals are reliable.

Without legal knowledge and skills, working in this sector is often very difficult.

These courses are geared towards students who have previous secretarial skills and general office or work experience.

Upgrade your existing skills and knowledge by joining our Legal Assistant programs and work with law firms or other legal sectors.

You can choose to become a specialist Conveyancing Assistant, a specialist Litigation Assistant or select our Combined Diploma course covering all subjects.

Legal Assistants require excellent typing skills and must be computer literate.  Their expected speeds and accuracy are from 50wpm.  We have included a Typing Speed Test link below, in order to check speeds and accuracy.
