Legal Receptionist Diploma

As a trained Legal Receptionist, you’ll find the pace high and demanding in a top city centre law firm. In a smaller firm, you may find you are responsible for a wider variety of tasks and have a more involved approach to your clients.

No matter the type of legal firm you work in, as the front face of a business you’ll need to have confidence in your abilities from the outset. This practical Legal Receptionist training will give you all the skills you need to develop that confidence.

With this diploma you’ll gain and enhance practical administrative skills for working as a receptionist. Not only will you find out more about how a legal office operates, you’ll also look at the fundamentals of working on reception, and also learn how to optimise the effect of your communication, both written and spoken.

There are six core courses within this diploma, all of which focus on helping you to master the core skills required to work as a successful Legal Receptionist. You’ll then tailor your training to suit your requirements by choosing one additional subject of your choice.
