About the course 

The main aim is to give attorneys a practical background in the law, practice and procedure of conveyancing and notarial practice. The training is provided by practising conveyancers and notaries who also draft the course material.

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 Molalatladi@LSSALEAD.org.za or tel no. (012) 441 4600.

These date will be communicate on the website during the course of 2022.

Format of the courses
Attendees can choose to study on an attendance basis that will be presented on MS Teams  and/or on a distance-education (correspondence) basis.
