ILSPA is offering its members a 20% discount on its Advanced Single Subject Legal Courses, which was previously only applicable to ILSPA’s Legal Secretaries Diploma graduates.
The usual course price is £300, but with the 20% discount there is a saving of £60, making the cost £240 – which can be paid either in full or in interest-free instalments.
Many of ILSPA’s members work in specific legal departments, such as litigation or family law.
“Being able to advance your knowledge and skills in the area you work in will not only help you perform better in your role, but it will also show your employers that you are dedicated to your job,” said ILSPA.
“If you are working in a certain area of law at the moment and you would like a change, that’s another good reason to study one of our advanced-level courses – you can acquire the knowledge and skills you need to make the move to another department or firm.”
ILSPA offers candidates looking for a job in the legal profession a range of subjects, including Civil Litigation, Corporate and Commercial Law, Criminal Law, Land Law and Conveyancing, Family Law – and Wills, Probate and Administration.
“Our advanced level courses will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the area of law you study, as well as some paralegal skills,” added ILSPA.
“This means that your employer will be able to give you more responsibility in your role, which could potentially lead to a pay raise or promotion.
“Our courses are available to study online by distance learning – you can start at any time of the year and study at your own pace.”
Students have up to one year to complete ILSPA courses, although students generally complete them within six months, depending on how much time they dedicate to their studies.
All course materials and resources are available online through the student area of the ILSPA website.
“When you enrol, you will be able to log in and access everything you need – when studying from home, you can receive help and support during the course from your Course Assessor or a member of our team,” added ILSPA.
“There are no examinations for the courses – the subjects are assessed through coursework which you must send to us to be marked.
“You are required to complete an online multiple-choice achievement test and a written assignment – your assignment will either include a series of questions relating to the area of law you have chosen, or be a scenario in which you are to advise on the correct legal proceedings.”
ILSPA added that graduates would not only be able to show their knowledge of law after studying the course, but also demonstrate their paralegal skills.
