How To Become A Legal Secretary

Legal Secretarial CoursesWhat’s the best way to become a Legal Secretary? Over the years that has proven to be a common question for our Course Advisors at Pitman Training in London and Manchester.

It’s clear that the legal sector is a hugely popular career path for secretaries, and we can tell this just by the constant flux of aspiring Legal PA’s that come to train with us.

It’s no wonder we’re inundated – the fascinating world of law is too good to resist, plus our legal secretarial courses are recognised by CILEX, the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.

What Does A Legal Secretary Do?

So what does a Legal Secretary actually do? Well, alongside secretarial duties, one of the things you can expect to see them doing is letter typing, as well as typing up documents such as wills and contracts, depending on which legal sector they work in.

This is all done via dictated notes and audio transcription, and it’s essential that a Legal Secretary has accurate typing skills.

Legal Secretaries provide vital support for insurance companies, legal firms, law courts – the list goes on.

As you can imagine, there are a lot of options for legal secretaries in terms of what area of the law they could potentially work in – family, wills and probate, divorce, criminal and corporate.

Does the Legal Secretarial path sound interesting? It should do – it’s an exciting career, and very well paid in some places; Legal Secretaries earn from £18,000 up to £40000 in some parts of the country.
