Description:Legal Administrative Assistants are the highest paid in the field of office administration. Also known as Legal Secretaries, they are key members of a legal office and are responsible for making it run smoothly. Vancouver Career College’s Legal Administrative Assistant diploma program trains you to become a high-status member of the legal office. This intensive program runs for 43 weeks and covers all aspects of the legal world. No previous secretary experience is required as the program trains students in all the required areas. Instructors explain how a legal office runs and the specific administrative duties required. Advanced keyboarding, transcription and computer skills (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Outlook) are all part of the curriculum. In addition, students receive an Internet and Core Computing Certification.

One of the most valuable aspects of a Legal Administrative Assistant is their familiarity with the Canadian legal system. During this program, students learn about the court structure and legal rights. Courses cover all forms of law: corporate and commercial, family, criminal, real estate and conveyance, and wills and estates. There are administrative opportunities at law offices specializing in all of the above areas. Following a five-week practicum, graduates will receive a Legal Administrative Assistant Diploma Program. Upon completing this program, graduates can also choose to further their training by entering our Paralegal Diploma Program.
