Legal Support Staff Training

Legal support staff can include a variety of different roles in a law firm. From admin assistants and receptionists, to IT professionals, accounts assistants and legal cashiers.

These non-legal positions play an important role in providing administrative and business support in the day to day running of a law firm. So it's vital that the non-fee earning roles in a business still receive the training and development they need.

We have therefore put together a range of training that is designed to provide support staff with the essential knowledge on law firm operations and the key skills they need to excel.

Our online courses are interactive and based on actual law firm scenarios. We have courses to cover the common skills, knowledge and techniques all staff need when working in a solicitors practice.
