The South African Law School has over the years empowered hundreds of students with legal skills which have enabled them to forge careers in the legal profession and in the commercial sector.
The School is accredited by the Safety and Security SETA (SAS SETA) to offer the Paralegal National Certificate and is also accredited by the Chartered Secretaries of South Africa (CSSA) to offer training for the CSSA qualification.
The South African Law School offers training from its campus situated in the Cape Town CBD on both a part-time and full-time basis.
The school continues to offer its highly regarded paralegal course, which is the most comprehensive and in-depth paralegal programme offered by any private paralegal school. In addition to the required modules that make up the national qualification, the school offers seven additional law modules to supplement the training learners receive. As a result of these additional skills, many of the School’s graduates have an advantage when enrolling at a university in order to obtain a degree, whether in law or in commerce.
At the moment, the property market continues to recover and the South African Law School’s Conveyancing and Finances course will equip conveyancing paralegals at just the right time with the right skills to enter this growing market. The highly successful Conveyancing programme includes basic hands-on training on the GhostConvey software, which is the software most widely used in conveyancing law firms as well as tuition in the financial transactions which accompany property transfers.
The School’s Administration of Deceased Estates course is an intensive programme of 8 Saturdays of double lectures which covers the process of administering deceased estates from beginning to end and includes practical exercises. The course opens doors to a well-paid career with attorneys, accountants and trust companies as an administrator of deceased estates. The Law School is one of few in the country accredited to provide training for the CSSA qualifications and will be offering training for level 1 of the CSSA qualification in on both a part-time and full-time basis.
Due to the fact that the Companies Act requires companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange to employ a suitably qualified company secretary, the CSSA qualification leads to a lifetime career in corporate governance. Corporate Governance professionals are highly sought-after and the qualification is recognised internationally.
