Why choose LEAD to train your staff

With over 30 years of training legal practitioners, LEAD under­stands the needs of a modern-day law practice and recognises the critical supporting role that staff play in a thriving practice.

For practices to succeed and grow, staff must be trained in up-to-date professional knowledge and skills. In today’s changing times, LEAD has identified a few topics for staff to help boost their skills and productivity and also help miti­gate the risk of negligence for the law practice.

Our courses provide staff with a thorough understanding of the law practice environment, procedures and systems. They are enjoyable, comprehensive and popular. Our philosophy is that staff should not only understand how to perform work but also the reason why they have to do certain tasks and the law behind it.

Why train your staff?

Duties nowadays are more complex

Over the past ±15 years, support staff (non-legal personnel) duties in law practices/departments have expanded and be­come much more complex. This is especially true since the in­creased use of software applications in law practices. As a result, modern legal support staff now needs more in-depth training.

Legal practitioners’ liability

Legal practitioners are vicariously liable for the wrongdoings and mistakes of their support staff. In order to mitigate this risk of negligence, legal practitioners should among other things ensure that their employees are properly trained and supervised. In addition, law practices that help to develop the full potential of their support staff optimise their overall performance.
