ILSPA’s Scholarship Scheme 2016

ILSPA’s Scholarship Scheme enables one Student each year to study our Legal Secretaries Diploma course for free. ILSPA would like to offer financial support to someone who may not be able to fund the course themselves, enabling him or her to have a successful Legal Secretary career.  

The application process for our Scholarship Scheme is open until 31 March 2016, and the successful applicant will be informed on 11 April 2016. If you are interested in applying for our Scholarship Scheme, or if you know anyone who would benefit from it, you can request an application form by emailing us at

Occasionally we receive enquiries from people who want to better themselves and have a good career by studying the Legal Secretaries Diploma course, but they are unable to afford the course fees. Through the Scholarship Scheme, we are able to give someone the opportunity to enrol for our course without the worry of the financial commitment.  

ILSPA’s Legal Secretaries Diploma course is suitable for those who have no previous experience in law as well as those who are familiar with law. It has been designed and written by legal professionals and is widely recognised by law firms, legal departments and legal recruiters. Our philosophy is that after completing this course you should understand not only how to perform Legal Secretary work but also the reason why you have to do certain tasks and the law behind it as a whole. 

The course will provide you with an understanding of various areas of law and the practical tasks involved with Legal Secretary work, such as legal document production, completing legal forms and typing professional correspondence. The course covers the four most common practice areas worked on in law firms and legal departments, which gives Students the best chance of securing employment or advancing their careers once qualified.

To qualify for the scheme, potential Students must be in a position of financial difficulty, but otherwise it is open to people of all ages and nationalities. On the application form we will ask potential Students about their financial situation, their current experience and skills, and what gaining the Legal Secretaries Diploma qualification will mean to them.

Whoever wins the scholarship will have the option to study the Legal Secretaries Diploma course by distance learning or through one of our evening classes in London. Our distance learning course can be started at any time of year, and we run our evening classes regularly. Students have a year to complete the course, although Students complete it within six months on average.

We will be tracking our scholarship Student’s progress throughout his or her studies, taking extra care to motivate and encourage the Student along the way. Not only will the person be presented with ILSPA’s Legal Secretaries Diploma Certificate upon passing the course, but he or she also will receive assistance in securing employment through CV help and guidance.
