Useful and Informative!
I really enjoyed it and found it very useful and informative. The fact that it is supported by professionals makes it authentic and applicable in the real world.
Thank you Centre for Paralegal Studies for your courses. The course material was very clear and easy to understand. I now feel more confident and motivated to help the lawyers where I work. I recommend the courses to all legal secretaries.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with the team at the “Centre for Paralegal Studies”, from the registration process until completion of my course (Paralegal Essentials).
The best part of the course was that it provided a step by step unwrapping of the essentials required of a paralegal. The course also provided me the flexibility of time and place to do the course at my own pace. Lastly, I thank you for the useful course and the prompt staff assistance whenever I required so.
I recently completed a course at the Centre for Paralegal Studies on Discovery in NSW. The course material was detailed but clear and I found it very helpful. I now know what tasks I would be expected to undertake if I were to work in litigation.
The course has given me the confidence and the tools to assist a litigation team with discovery. I recommend this course to all my secretary/paralegal/law student friends.
