Leeds Law School launches new course for paralegals
The Postgraduate Diploma in Paralegal Practice is a one-year course, blending face-to-face and online learning, which aims to equip professionals with the skills required to carry out an increasingly important paralegal role. Students can now apply to start the course in September 2012.
Members of the legal profession and those interested in applying for the course are invited to attend the official launch at the University's Rose Bowl building from 5:30 - 7:30pm.
Guests will be able to find out more about the new course by meeting Course Leader, Elizabeth Turner, and course staff; sampling a taster of each course module, including File and Project Management, Communication Skills and Legal Services as a Business; and networking with other professionals. Light refreshments will be served throughout the evening.
Elizabeth commented: "The launch of the new Postgraduate Diploma in Paralegal Practice is an exciting development for Leeds Law School. This innovative course has been developed in response to recent changes in the legal market and an increase in the number of paralegals being employed across legal businesses of all types.
"Employers of paralegals will find graduates of the new diploma to be valuable contributors to their business. This will be especially appealing to those businesses new to the legal services market."
The Postgraduate Diploma in Paralegal Practice also offers students the opportunity to participate in a mentor scheme which partners students with practitioners from the legal area of their choice.
