What our clients say...

I thought the course was very relevant, thorough and up-to-date. The feedback provided by my tutor was very helpful.  The method of study was easily manageable within my work schedule.   I believe the course cemented the foundation for the work I currently do, and that it helped me to set a standard of excellence for myself in my work, which I am confident that I will continue to meet.  I am proud to be a Qualified Paralegal (Q. Inst. Pa.) in Wills, Probate & Administration, and I would wholeheartedly recommend the course to anyone wishing to further their career in this area.  I have certainly never looked back!

The qualification was more appropriate to the real world than any of the others that I looked at. Its modular style suited my life as I was able to study and work on the qualification whilst still doing my day job. The practical focus of the qualification suited the way I learn more than the other theory-focussed qualifications that are out there. The independent Will Writing sector gets a bad reputation - qualified practitioners are few and far between. A formal qualification allows my business to differentiate itself in the market place, and safeguards my business with a view to potential future regulation of the sector.
