Paralegals are integral to our business. If you ask law firms in five years time whether they have increased their number of paralegals, you will almost certainly find that they have done so.

Professionaly qualified paralegals are a valuable asset, wherever they work. They make a substantial contribution to the private client legal profession, local authorities and public and private sector entities alike.

I have just recieved my results, and wanted to thank you for all your help. In particular, Melanie your guidance and advice at the start of the process was very helpful. You and Stephanie were both extremely accommodating and supportive of me by allowing me to use your office as an exam venue. I will be happy to recommend your qualifications to colleagues and friends in the legal sector.

Cameron Shaw - Employment Law Graduate

Becoming a qualified licensing paralegal was very much a springboard for my career. The Qualification enabled me to secure a position with a specialist firm of solicitors in the first instance, from which I then decided to pursue a full law degree. The academic experience of taking the course certainly helped me with the law degree as well as the work experience I was able to gain through the position it helped me secure. I am now a qualified solicitor specialising in the field of licensing and in fact I was ultimately appointed the tutor to the very course I had taken myself. I am now honoured to help future paralegals through their own studies and am very proud of the candidates I have successfully guided to graduation.

Stephen John McGowan – Director of Licensing at TLT

I deal with a variety of cases and in particular specialise in Debt Recovery and Housing Law cases. I handle my own caseload under the supervision of the Glasgow Litigation Partner and deal with all aspects of each case from taking instructions, preparing court documentation, attending at Court for first hearings in Summary Cause and Small Claims actions until either Decree is granted or the case becomes defended. In defended actions I support the solicitors on the team by assisting them with the preparations required for proof hearings. I was recently promoted to Senior Legal Executive and look forward to the challenges and added responsibilities that my new role will bring

The staff who have undertaken/are undertaking the course are all part of the Specialist recoveries team. They Investigate accounts to assess suitability for claims, initiate the claims process and deal with any correspondence from customers or the courts.  They will then attend court where necessary. The team deal with accounts from pre claim through to enforcement. The Collections Manager, team manager and the team of 8 are/have completing/completed the course. The majority of the team are new to the litigation process, so this has been invaluable to build their knowledge of the court procedures and process

This was completed in their own time and they could work and complete the course to suit their lifestyles.

Sarah Crofts, Training Manager

Excellent service from the staff at CLT especially Melanie and Stephanie. They really go the extra mile. Very informative course with brilliant examples which really help. So glad that I Qualified as a Paralegal through CLT could not have received a better service or course.   

Afton Henderson, Paralegal, Sneddon Morrison

The staff at CLT were very helpful whenever I contacted them with any queries regarding the course. Passing my exam has definitely helped my career and I have been given more responsibility at work now.

Llaura Burton Philipson, Paralegal, W & AS Bruce

I was extremely impressed with the Commercial Conveyancing Course, and have had particularly positive engagements with the staff at CLT and have recommended your CPD courses to colleagues at my current employers, where I have now been working for over 10 months thanks, in no small part, to my Paralegal qualification.

Tracey Matheson, Paralegal, Austin Lafferty Solicitors

I have recently completed my Specialist Paralegal in Family Law. I found the course to be extremely helpful in my day to day job, even before I had completed the course.  Stephanie Love was so supportive and her replies were very prompt.  This is the first time I have studied for quite some time so took all the allocated time to complete the course, which is more than enough time, even with working full time and children.  I found receiving your assignments back with the markings and notes on them to be extremely helpful for the following assignments.  I have gained some invaluable knowledge completing my paralegal course and this has certainly encouraged me to study further and I am looking forward to completing further courses in the near future.

Louise Hamilton, Cowan Douglas Law LLP

All my legal experience was mainly in conveyancing and trust and executry work until two years ago when I was placed on secondment to the court department at Optima.  I have learned so much in the last two years and was very lucky to be given the opportunity to complete the specialist paralegal qualification in debt recovery.  The course has most definitely aided me in having a good knowledge and understanding of the debt recovery process and has been invaluable in helping me carry out my day to day duties.

Sarah Holland, Trainee Litigation Paralegal, Optima Legal Scotland Ltd

Thank you for the support you provided me with during the paralegal course, it’s been greatly appreciated. The course has provided me with best stepping stone to progress in law and I can only thank CLT for that.

Ainsley Boyd - Wills, Trusts & Executries Graduate

The subject itself is difficult - anything legal isn't always 'clear and easy to follow' but I feel the manuals are set up as clearly as they can be. I'll certainly refer to them throughout my learning and development as a Paralegal.
