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. Our Legal Secretaries Diploma enables students to advance their professional skills, elevating their performance to exemplary standards whilst providing them with a solid basis of legal knowledge and procedure. Our students are empowered to become an asset within their workplace, providing a superior service to the benefit of the companies that appoint them. We are very grateful for the exceptionally positive feedback we consistently receive from our Students and are proud to present a small selection from people who have received great benefits from studying through us. We hope this provides encouragement to our Students and those who have graduated.

Iliana Stamatova, London – Distance Learning Student: Great news! I have secured a fantastic job as a Junior Legal Secretary at one of UK’s top intellectual property firms’ London offices: Forresters! Not only that, they had a strict requirement for a Legal Secretary qualification and spoke very highly of ILSPA. I am truly grateful for your support following the completion of my course. I took on board every piece of advice you had to offer and simply kept sending applications and crossing my fingers. And it worked! I hope I can continue relying on your valuable support in the future and remain part of the ILSPA community for the years ahead!

Emma Goring, Bexleyheath – Evening Class Student: I really enjoyed the course. Seamus was an excellent tutor with so much enthusiasm for the subject and was always happy to help and answer my questions. The course was very well structured and provided a great platform to learn about many aspects of the law. Taking this course alongside working was highly regarded when I went to interviews, and within a month of starting this course I accepted a job as a Conveyancing Legal Secretary. Thank you for all your support! 

Naseem Badruddin, Ilford – Distance Learning Student: I have thoroughly enjoyed the course. It has been very insightful and well structured. The contents of the course are written in detail and are enjoyable to read. Whilst reading the contents of the course, it seemed at times I was being taught by a tutor in a classroom setting. I have found the assessments to be relevant and am very happy with the practical assessments that needed to be carried out. These gave me the confidence to ask for more responsibilities at work. Currently working in a law firm, I have found the course useful and have utilised my knowledge gained from the course into the workplace. Thank you very much for the guidance of my tutor Maria Richards, who answered my questions and replied instantly! I recommend this course to everyone seeking a career path within the legal sector.

Victoria Hayes, London – Evening Class Student: I have been very impressed by the ILSPA Legal Secretaries Diploma course. It is organised and well structured. Jonathan Butterworth, the Barrister who taught our evening classes, is excellent. It was Jonathan’s expertise that made the course digestible and understandable, which was reassuring because I had no prior work experience in law. The other students are also clever and inspiring people. The course assessor has been consistently helpful in answering my queries. Amanda Hamilton is an expert guide of the tour of the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

Julie Vincent, Bedfordshire – Distance Learning Student: My experience of the Institute of Legal Secretaries was a very positive one. It boosted my confidence no end and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to set out in a Legal Secretary career, or anyone who has had a Legal Secretary career but wants to reinforce it with a recognised qualification and/or possibly further it with more training. My Legal Secretaries Diploma means a great deal to me. Having been a Legal Secretary for 31 years, I found that gaining my diploma boosted my confidence no end. It is also a great addition to my CV should I need it in the future. I am really loving my job at Horwood & James LLP and have grown as a secretary since I have been here. It seems that there is a lack of good Legal Secretaries out there, and any encouragement I could give to anyone to pursue a career in this field I would be very happy to do so. I believe that the Legal Secretaries Diploma course is a great foundation to newcomers to the profession and is a great boost to those of us who have been in the profession for some time and need that extra support and encouragement to continue our careers.
