The Institute of Legal Secretaries and PAs are delighted to be offering live online classes, which start on Wednesday 27 January 2021. Online classes have become a very popular form of learning due to the growth of virtual communication during the current pandemic.

To celebrate the announcement of our next class, we are offering an early bird discount of £100 to all Students who enrol before 30 November 2020.


The beauty of the live online class option is that you can study our course from the comfort of your own home as well as being taught by one of our tutors. Our online classes enable you to have an interactive experience, where you can communicate with your tutor and be part of a group of Students.

Your tutor will provide you with support and encouragement throughout your studies. Students regularly provide feedback on how much they have enjoyed the classes and have found our tutors to be friendly and helpful.


Our online classes are the perfect option for someone who is thinking about studying our distance learning course but doesn’t want to miss out on having a tutor. It is also beneficial for those who previously would have been unable to attend a class as they live outside London or are overseas. #With the ability to log in to our classes from wherever you are, you have access to a very beneficial and flexible form of study.


The classes will take place one evening a week for 14 weeks. You will not have to physically attend as everything can be accessed online via a link. All you will need is a tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Alongside attending classes, you will need to set aside time to study and complete coursework each week.

All the course material and Student resources are available online through our website. There are no examinations for the course. You are assessed through coursework, which consists of multiple-choice achievement tests and practical assessments.


ILSPA’s Legal Secretaries Diploma course is equivalent to a Level 3 qualification. You will learn about the day-to-day tasks of a Legal Secretary, various areas of law, the legal profession and how the court system operates.

The course also covers legal terminology, legal document production, how to complete legal forms and how to type professional correspondence. ILSPA’s qualification is recognised by law firms and legal recruiters.

Whether you are a beginner and want to become a Legal Secretary, or you are an experienced Legal Secretary who wants to gain a formal qualification, our Legal Secretary course is suitable for you. We have a wide range of Students of all ages, many nationalities and varying levels of experience.


If you would like to enrol, we recommend that you do so as soon as possible, as our Diploma course is very popular. For more information, please take a look at ILSPA’s website here.
