Email Scams – Be Vigilant

The Internet must easily rank as being the best invention of the late 20th century. The ease in which we are now able to communicate with each other around the world really is worth its weight in gold. And alas, this is exactly how more and more unscrupulous individuals feel about the potential opportunities to exploit others and even steal using the World Wide Web.

Highly Valued by Students and Law Firms

Our Legal Secretaries Diploma course is greatly valued by both our Students and the law firms in which they secure employment. Law firms around the country hold our Diploma in high regard and often cite it for the reason that they chose to employ a candidate. We also have firms enrolling their staff on our courses to gain the legal knowledge and skills they need.

Jacqueline McGuigan – From Legal Secretary to Lawyer

We at ILSPA believe that, with the right initiative, our students have the potential to reach any goal that they aspire to. This belief has been supported recently in the case of Jacqueline McGuigan, former Legal Secretary, now Lawyer, who rose to media fame due to a significant employment law case.

Land Law – Rent Charges

Rent charges have existed since the 13th century and have traditionally provided an income for landowners who allowed their land to be developed. It would be fair to say that in recent years, rent charges have not been a major feature of any conveyancing transaction, but that may be set to change. There have been a number of cases recently where private investment companies have been imposing heavy financial penalties on homeowners for non-payment.

The Benefits of Specialising in One Area of Law

One of the great things about the Institute of Legal Secretaries and PAs is the fact that they present you with a choice to either study many different areas of law through their Legal Secretaries Diploma course, or alternatively, you may choose to study individual areas of law through their Single Subject Legal courses

The Importance of Using Accurate Terminology in Wills

Whilst we all fully appreciate the fact that using the correct terminology in all areas of law is imperative, Wills are perhaps of the most importance. After all, we are talking about discharging the last wishes of the deceased: therefore, we really do need to ensure we get things just right.
