Student success

Very helpful in obtaining a good insight into how law firms work.

Made me realise that I need to understand what is involved in managing a law firm to be a really successful lawyer.

Well presented and well structured with pertinent practical assessments.

It is the fact that this course is structured with practitioners in mind that I find particularly useful.
