Practice Management Accreditation Course

Does your team work with Scottish solicitors on a day to day basis?

Ensure your team have an edge when it comes to dealing with the legal sector by training them how legal practices work financially and specifically on the Law Society of Scotland account rules. The Law Society's accredited training will enable your team to demonstrate a greater understanding of the needs of your solicitor clients.

The legal services sector is bound by complex rules and regulations. Our Practice Management Accreditation Course provides other professions with training covering areas such as financial compliance, professional indemnity insurance, professional ethics and client accounts rules, as well as the new forms of business structures that will be able to offer legal services. Attending the course will enable your team to understand better why solicitors have to adopt certain working practices to comply with the rules and regulations of the Law Society of Scotland.

If you are looking to grow your market share or move into the legal services market, this is the only available course to give you an insight into the issues that solicitors in Scotland face.PMScolour
