Property law has changed dramatically in recent years, with changes to the law in respect of the formation of a contract for the sale of land, the introduction of title guarantee, the new Land Registration Act and accompanying rules; and these changes have not finished with the proposals to extend electronic conveyancing and the likelihood of further developments with regards to land registration.
In order to effectively advise to a client, a paralegal, like a solicitor, legal executive or licensed conveyancer must know where to find the answer to the client’s problem. This necessitates knowledge of the sources of law and it is important that a paralegal is aware of the order of precedence of these sources.
Our up to date practical course is designed to provide a comprehensive A-Z in Property Law matters, placing an emphasis on insights, practical solutions and risk management to allow paralegals to train as fee-earning, coalface conveyancers.

What our clients say...
I enjoyed the course as it gave me the opportunity to do more work on my own. It has made me more confident in my convictions and has given the solicitors at the firm more opportunities to give me fee-earning work!
