The legal way forward

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.
