The Law Society of Singapore (map)


No law practice or legal department can operate effectively without paralegals and legal support staff. In recognition of the important support role they play, the Law Society of Singapore and Temasek Polytechnic have jointly developed a foundational certificate course on various aspects of Procedural and Substantive Law and Practice Management specifically designed for these stakeholders. This course has also been enhanced to cover more aspects of Law Practice and the Legal Environment. 3 new modules on Elements of Accounting for Legal Executives, Company Secretarial Practice and Management of Law Office and Court Technology have been introduced in 2016.

Each aspect of this Course, from its content to structure to duration, has been crafted based on the valuable feedback we have received from key users of paralegal services, including Managing Partners/Directors of law practices and Heads of Legal Departments. This ensures the unsurpassed quality and relevance of this Course.

Each Module is conducted using a combination of lecturettes, case studies, exercises and concluding with a simple written test.

Participants who attend each Module in full and pass the written test at the end of each Module will be awarded a joint Certificate of Completion for the Module by the Law Society of Singapore and Temasek Polytechnic.
