NALPs CEO Amanda Hamilton discusses the role of Paralegals within the Legal Sector and how Paralegals excel with bespoke qualifications and training. 

 

NALP offers a number of courses for aspiring paralegals. What are the benefits of doing a course with NALP?  

I think in this day and age, and with the sector having changed so rapidly over the past few years, it’s very important that a paralegal is properly trained and qualified. Our courses are all bespoke, accredited and regulated qualifications, and since NALP is an awarding organisation that is regulated by OfQual (the government body for national qualifications in England), we can guarantee that all of our bespoke qualifications are robust and fit for purpose.

If you’re wanting to be a paralegal working in the legal sector, it’s essential that, just like if you were trained to be a solicitor, barrister or chartered legal executive, that you have the right qualifications under your belt.

This not only gives someone confidence to do legal work, but also will give their clients and consumers the confidence in them. I think that’s so important for an individual – to make sure they’re properly qualified and trained.
