About this course

This four-part legal secretary course begins with an introduction to civil litigation and moves on to the claim form and particulars of claim. Your pursuit of legal secretary knowledge continues with filing and serving the claim form and the admission, defence and counterclaim procedures via the District, Circuit and High Courts.

Like all our legal secretarial courses, this one allows you to learn at your own pace, with one-on-one support from an experienced course advisor. You’ll also get the most respected name in secretarial training on your CV - Pitman Training and a personalised workbook to keep for reference.

What’s more, we can also provide alternatives with both Scottish Law and English Law versions of this course. So if moving to the UK, you can be confident that wherever you work, you’ve chosen the very best training.

 

Your next step should be to progress to our courses in audio transcription, shorthand or other specialist secretarial legal courses to enhance your unique skill-set even further. The full Legal Secretarial Diploma is the most prestigious one we offer, which can lead to a very rewarding career.

Aims and Objectives

This, the best of legal secretarial courses, qualifies you to prepare the documentation in a civil litigation department. But unlike other legal secretary training, ours gives you the basis for full-time or temp work and an insight into fee earners' work - which means greater job satisfaction and possible promotion.
