The “Certificate in Legal Secretariat Skills 2020” course is suitable for staff working in a Singapore Law Practice who wish to understand the foundations and basics to support them in their work as a legal secretary. This course has been enhanced to cover more aspects of law practice and the legal environment, and aims to provide basic and valuable legal, ethical and compliance knowledge and practical skills to enable a legal secretary to effectively support a practitioner.

Participants will gain a better appreciation of the context and parameters of their work in a law practice with case study group discussions which will further help them carry out their functions in line with recommended practices.

Participants will also learn about the common risks which may occur in the course of working in a law practice.

Our experienced practitioners and speakers will share with participants on what their role and duties are in relation to specific practice areas. Participants will understand how they can better assist the lawyers in their respective firms and arm themselves with best practices or useful information that they can apply to their daily work and thus be more effective.

Participants are required to attend all 7 modules in order to qualify for the “e-Certificate of Completion”. S

SkillsFuture Credit will only be applicable to the applicants who attend and complete all seven modules of the course.
