Course Overview


This course is suited to you if you are currently, or have previously been, employed in the legal industry. If you are new to legal then we generally recommend starting with our Certificate III in Business Administration (Legal) – although it is possible to start with this course. In such case, please contact us to help decide which is best for you. This course could also suit you if you are returning to the workforce after a break and want to gain a nationally recognised legal qualification.


This course addresses the skills and knowledge required to carry out many of the legal secretarial, administrative and paralegal duties typically carried out within a law firm or similar legal environment. The skills and experience gained from this course should significantly benefit you if you are already working in legal. If you are new to the legal industry then upon successful completion of this qualification, you should have obtained the skills and experience needed to gain employment into an entry-level role within a law firm or legal environment.

OneLegal Training & Recruitment is also able to help you gain employment within the legal industry upon successful completion of this course.

Course Summary

To obtain this qualification, you are required to successfully complete 10 Units of competency, ie 10 subjects in total.

Workbooks with reading and learning activities, together with Assessment Guides are downloaded from our online portal. Written assessments are carried out at the end of each Task and sent to us online to show you have gained the required skills and knowledge.  We mark each assessment and once you are deemed “competent” you move to the next one, until you have completed the course. Where you receive a “not yet competent” outcome, we let you know the changes needed to get a “competent” outcome.
