Course Best Practice in Time Recording (E-learning Course)


This concise interactive e-learning course is suitable for all fee-earners, but especially those in a junior role who are getting to grips with time-recording practice. Getting on top of ‘lost’ time can reap great financial benefits for your firm, and this course will show learners how.

Learning outcomes

By completing the course modules your fee-earners will be able to:

  • Distinguish between billable hours and matter-related time
  • Recognise the consequences of incomplete time recording
  • Understand the importance and impact of effective and accurate time recording
  • Feel more confident fully recording all time spent on a matter

Topics covered include:

  • Chargeable hours vs matter-related time
  • What clients want
  • Common challenges in time-recording and how to overcome them
  • Impact on pricing, management and billing targets

Let’s face it, time recording is a bore! But it has many purposes beyond simply creating a bill, and fully recording matter-related time enables your firm to:

  • Make accurate decisions on pricing
  • Understand its financial position in relation to work-in-progress, and be protected from unexpected or destabilising shocks
  • Monitor and manage workloads and performance against budget
  • Maximise efficiency
  • Build strong client relationships based on transparency and trust

Course features

The course maximises the potential of e-learning with a range of interactive exercises which will engage learners and keep their attention:

  • Animations
  • Videos
  • Drag and drop exercises
  • Flipcards
  • Self-reflection exercises
  • End of course quiz
  • Certificate of completion which can be added to a personal development record


Guide time to complete the course: 45 minutes.
