About the Programme
The 21st Legal Practice Management Course is conducted by the Law Society together with The College of Law for the online learning courses which consist of the 2 modules listed below. Completion of this Course counts towards fulfillment of the requirement set out in section 75C(1)(a) of the Legal Profession Act. Delivered using a mixture of lectures, case studies and panel discussions and online modules. This Course is taught by subject matter experts in law practice management.
The Course is structured as a comprehensive 1 1/2-day programme. Aside from the foundational session on law practice management, it includes topics of current relevance to practitioners such as professional ethics, anti-money laundering regulations, personal data protection act and practice management essentials. Registrants will also be required to complete an online lecture-reading before the start of the course to better understand on the practice management essentials. This Course is vital for any member who wishes to start his own practice or to manage it better.
As part of the entire Legal Practice Management Course programme, there are two online modules for participants to access: -
Module 1: Business Planning
Understanding strategic and business planning processes is critical for effective practice management. In this unit, we focus on how to prepare and implement a business plan to set goals and delineate the future direction of the practice. Developing such a holistic plan allows practitioners to articulate the practice’s overarching vision and specify the concrete actions to be taken to achieve that vision; it entails providing an overview of the current state of the practice, the strategic goals of the practice, the process for achieving these goals, and the process for measuring results. At the end of this module, you will be able to create a business plan.
Module 2: Management of Self
A high level of self-awareness is necessary for managing competing priorities and improving performance in the workplace. This unit examines the underlying causes of unproductive behaviours, and focuses on how to override these behaviours and adopts “habit of excellence”.
Your access to both modules is valid from 12 February 2019 to 12 March 2019. Strictly no extension is allowed. You will receive an email within 1 week from the registration date from The College of Law with the log-in details in order to access the 2 modules online.
