This qualification covers the advanced skills and knowledge required for working as a legal secretary. A good command of English is essential.

You will first learn to touch type and throughout the year you will cover the main areas of law in a solicitor's office such as criminal, civil, probate, corporate, family and conveyancing. You will study for a proofreading exam which must be passed to gain the qualification.

You must undertake a week’s work experience in a professional organisation either in the city or in a local law firm.
