The Level 2 Certificate for Legal Secretaries
The latest Microsoft Office 2007 software is used at the Centre
When is the course held?
Level 2 : Monday or Tuesday evening - 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm
The legal secretarial courses are made up of modules: Legal Word Processing, Working in the Legal Environment, plus an external Proof-Reading examination. You will learn a range of skills including: legal document production, proof-reading skills, audio-typing. You will also learn a range of communication and office practice skills eg: organising meetings, producing itineraries, induction programmes and a range of computer software skills.
Many of our students acquire well paid jobs in the legal sector even before they complete their course. Some become so stimulated they continue their training to become Legal Executives in specialised areas of law.
You will be expected to have a basic level of word processing skills and a good standard of written English.
It will take 3 terms to complete the whole course therefore regular attendance is vital. In addition to the time spent at college, there will be about 3 hours per week homework.
As part of the course we assist students with Curriculum Vitae production to gain employment within the legal field e.g. in the Courts, Legal Departments of commercial companies, Law Firms, Local Authorities etc.
