Secretarial Training and Development

Lawyers know that their most valuable asset is their client - the Legal Secretary is a close second.  Legal Secretaries help lawyers with their work and need to ensure they provide clients with an exceptional service. A happy client will be a client for life and bring in new business through word of mouth. The development of the Legal Secretary role is a key to business success in an increasingly competitive market. Law firms that help develop the full potential of the legal secretarial role optimise their overall performance.

The Institute of Legal Secretaries and PAs actively encourages Students and Members to advance their professional knowledge, skills and attributes through our qualifications, Continuing Professional Development programme and online Legal Secretary Journal.

Your firm could benefit greatly by having staff members who receive professional recognition, are encouraged to advance their skills and are dedicated to their careers. Students receive free Membership of the Institute for a year so that they can experience the benefits.

If you are interested in Legal Secretary training, our courses are comprehensive and very good value. ILSPA's Legal Secretaries Diploma course is very popular with law firms throughout the country.  We also have a range of Single Subject Legal Courses which will save your firm time and money due to the excellent legal knowledge and skills your secretaries will gain. They will be able to take on extra responsibilities and perform their work with competence.

ILSPA's philosophy is that Legal Secretaries and PAs should understand not only how to perform certain tasks but also the reason for those tasks and the principles of law behind them. This provides them as well as their employers with confidence in their work.

Many of our Students and Members are supported by their firms, which include:
