Courses for in-house legal departments

We offer courses for in-house legal departments to develop staff at all levels, which will help your team to become more effective. Here are a number of ways that we can help you to achieve a number of very different goals, each of which has been used successfully by many client organisations:

Train unqualified personnel to progress standard files under supervision

Use our Level 3 courses in law and legal practice to deliver introductory training for paralegals and support staff, such as courses in Contract and Civil Litigation for the members of your team working in debt collection. Free up your own time for the higher-level work. Read testimonials from in-house staff who are qualifying through CILEx.

Develop your legal secretaries’ administrative skills

Let your legal secretaries take more of the strain by training them to be more effective administrators through our courses for legal secretaries.

Home-grow your own Chartered Legal Executive lawyers

If you currently sponsor staff to become solicitors you will be surprised at how cost-effective it is to train them to become Chartered Legal Executive lawyers instead. Read testimonials from in-house staff who are qualifying through CILEx.

Train non-legal staff in other departments to handle standard matters

Our introductory courses in law and legal practice are ideal to train your purchasing officer in the Law of Contract or to develop junior staff in the HR department by training them in Employment Law. Introductory courses in law for non-legal staff can prevent issues arising so that fewer matters need to be referred to your department.
