About the Course 

No law practice or legal department can operate effectively without paralegals and legal support staff. In recognition of their important role, the Law Society of Singapore and Temasek Polytechnic have 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 environoment. 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 lectures, case studies, exercises and concluding with a simple written test.

Module 2:      Management of Law Court and Court Technology

Module 3:      Drafting Transactional Documents in Conveyancing Transactions
