The Solicitors Regulation Authority has accredited us to deliver electives to trainees as part of the compulsory Professional Skills Course (PSC). Our electives develop the trainees’ skills in communicating in writing both internally with colleagues and externally with clients.
We can tailor any elective or combination of electives to suit your needs, but our standard half-day modules include the following:
- Brush up your grammar and punctuation
- Effective business writing
- Effective emails
- Client-focused legal advice letters
- Introduction to modern legal drafting (two modules)
- The principles of time recording
Firms often combine two of these modules to create a full day course.
Please contact us for more information about these electives.
