What is a legal secretary course?

A vital role in any legal team, a legal secretary ensures the smooth running of a business by completing important admin tasks, performing legal research and liaising with clients.

When you study a legal secretary course, you learn all the essential office-based skills required to support a legal team, including computer literacy and audio transcription. You also learn all the fundamental ‘know-how’ relevant to your role, such as national and international laws, legal terms and standard procedures.

What qualifications will I need to become a legal secretary?

While many employers seek candidates with legal secretary college course certifications or higher, at Pitman you can become a legal secretary without any formal qualifications.

Not only do all of our legal secretary qualifications provide the knowledge and experience you need to impress potential employers, but they are all CPD-certified, too. Graduates who display CPD points alongside their legal secretary training demonstrate a clear dedication to career self-development.
