ACT (Admin and Corporate Training) is a division of the Law Society of South Africa’s Legal Education and Development (LEAD) division. LEAD has many years’ experience in providing an extensive range of learning activities and skills development interventions to the legal profession.
ACT originated from the growing need to train individuals who are not legal practitioners, but who work closely with legal practitioners in support functions, mainly in attorneys’ firms. Our main function is to bring a clear understanding of the law to individuals who have not studied law.
Legal support staff training: Legal administrative training or support staff training is offered to persons who need a thorough understanding of the law firm environment, procudures and systems. This training will be of enormous value to administrative employees from law firms, legal departments or persons who want to pursue a career in law. For firms to succeed and grow, their staff must be trained in up-to-date professional knowledge and skills. In today’s changing times, LEAD has identified top ten topics for staff to help boost their skills and productivity and also help mitigate the risk of negligence for the law firm/legal department. Courses : Legal Secretary, Deceased Estates, Debt Collection, Civil litigation in the Magistrate's Court, Civil litigation in the High Court, Conveyancing - both basic and advanced, Legal Bookkeeping, English writing Skills as well as Office Management
