Various types of mediums are available to operate a business in the United Kingdom. Essentially these are, Sole Traders, Partnerships, Limited Partnerships, Limited Liability Partnerships, Private Limited Companies and Public Limited Companies. With the exception of sole traders, the other mediums involve an association of varying numbers of people for a common purpose or object.

This course will concentrate mainly on Private Limited Companies, their constituent elements and how they operate. It is however necessary to understand the mechanisms of the other business mediums to provide clients with full advice on the most appropriate medium for them when both commencing a business venture and when deciding the most appropriate mechanism for expansion. We will investigate the practical application of company law and the various obligations and types of forms that company secretaries, paralegals and legal support professionals would be expected to deal with.

What our clients say...

I really enjoyed doing the Paralegal qualification. The course notes were clear and concise, the assignments were well structured and the feedback from the tutor was given in a very positive way.  The staff at CLT were always friendly and helpful.

Esther Stacey, Paralegal, Risdon Hosegood Solicitors

The comprehensive materials provided were clearly laid out and easy to follow. The flexibility regarding both study and where the exam is taken meant I could fit it in around a full-time job. As a result of my qualification I now feel that I make a valid contribution to the legal department where I work because of my increased understanding of Company Law.  And, on top of everything else, I found the course genuinely interesting. Gillian Marshall, Company Secretary, Moonray Services (UK) Limited
I thoroughly enjoyed my distance learning studying experience with CLT! I must say I was also very proud of the results I achieved and my graduation ceremony in Bristol Cathedral is a day I will never forget.  Amanda Parent, Company Secretarial Assistant, Southern Co-operative
