NALP (the National Association of Licensed Paralegals) is delighted to announced that their courses will now be available at seven more colleges across the UK. This will provide paralegal students with more options when it comes to where to study and what method of study works best for them.

For those looking to take their first steps to becoming a paralegal, or enhancing their career prospects, they need to choose a training centre with which to complete their NALP qualification. NALP training centres offer taster and CPD courses right through to full postgraduate qualifications.

NALP is an awarding organisation regulated by Ofqual (the regulator of qualifications in England) and through NALP Centres (Colleges and Training organisations) offers recognised qualifications.

Each of the following colleges will be offering NALP’s Level 3 Certificate in Paralegal Practice, which is the entry level qualification for paralegals. The course is perfect for those looking to become a paralegal and those with some paralegal experience who are seeking to progress their career in the legal sector or within a variety of other industries. The NALP qualification gives students a good grounding in law. It covers four units relating to Introduction to Law including Contract and Tort Law, Legal Ethics and Responsibilities, Civil Litigation and Criminal Litigation. https://www.nationalparalegals.co.uk/training-centres/

Paralegals have an increasingly important role to play in the legal system, as well as within other organisations, and it is a genuinely great choice for people looking for a career in law, who may not have the time or finances to go down the traditional routes to becoming a solicitor or barrister.
