Finance Skills for Lawyers

Law firms play a critical role in the financial and business world, but it is not uncommon for lawyers to have little or no training in finance matters.

Our range of courses provide legal staff with a fundamental understanding of the financial world. Our training will outfit lawyers with a knowledge of what information financial decisions are based on and how to understand how their client's business operates.

Training and skills in financial analysis gives lawyers additional credibility when speaking to their business clients. A lawyer who appreciates the key performance indicators of a company and the financial impact decisions have, will have additional tools to supply a comprehensive service to corporate clients.

Our training courses cover:

  • The basic components of a set of company accounts
  • Profit & Loss accounts and the three different types of profit
  • Understanding Key Performance Indicators
  • The financial markets, corporate finance and investments
  • Running a law firm with a business mindset
  • Accountant jargon busting (PBIT, EBIT, KPIs, CFO)

Course Formats

Our financial training is split into various e-learning courses that you can take individually or as a package. This online training can be done at your own pace and each interactive course takes between one and two hours to complete.
