Although these courses also assist attendees to prepare for the conveyancing and notarial examinations, mere attendance of the lectures and completing the assignments may not be sufficient to pass the examinations. Intense study and diligent practise in the drafting of deeds as well as participation in class discussions and workshops, are essential. For preparation focused on the conveyancing examination, LEAD offers a three-day examination preparation workshop, for more information, please contact Molalatladi Modiba at email or tel no.

Format of the courses
Attendees can choose to study on an attendance basis at various centres around the country and/or on a distance-education (correspondence) basis.
