What does the job of Legal Secretary involve?

The duties of a Legal Secretary are varied.

Legal Secretaries are generally expected to be able to demonstrate excellent secretarial skills, computer literacy and attention to detail. Knowledge of law and legal procedures, the ability to multi-task and a polite, helpful manner can also be important.

What I would highlight I am at three quarters of the route through my Legal Secretary Diploma Course, I have concentrated full time and it has taken me about seven days (couple of hours every day). Very educational course which makes you retain every module well, with worksheets toward the finish of every module. Gave a splendid information base into the distinctive ranges of Law. Highly prescribed to any individual who has some extra time and needs to extend their legal information.

What could be improved Nothing.
