Law Firm Induction Training

Induction - Working in a law firm

Course Overview

This e-learning course will make sure your new business support staff understand all of the critical professional and ethical rules that apply when working in a law firm.

Also, you'll get peace of mind that your firm is complying with its regulatory obligations to manage risk by training all staff. It ensures consistent and good quality training, with monitoring and reporting available to ensure delegates complete all of the seven modules that make up the Induction course.

As part of the online induction training, delegates will watch different everyday scenarios that they may encounter when working in a law firm. They'll then be asked to decide on what approach to take, and be given helpful feedback on their decisions.



The course explains to non-legally qualified employees exactly what it means to work in a regulated and professional service organisation.

The 7 modules cover the following key areas:

  • What's special about law firms?
  • Law firms and their clients
  • Solicitors and the court
  • Lawyers and third parties
  • Solicitors' undertakings
  • What if there's a problem?
  • Professional reputation

Delegates will also gain basic awareness of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and SRA Standards and Regulations compliance.
