LawSkills has been training lawyers in probate for 20 or more years. At one time this was done face to face over several days. Now with the wonders of the internet, we can present to you a 10 module course to download and work through at your own pace.

Who is it for?

This course has been designed with the following in mind:

beginners guide to probateThe complete beginner or novice– the paralegal who may be working in the probate team but could be enabled to really support busy seniors if only they had more knowledge of why they are doing things. Understanding the whole picture of what probate is about. Realising where the risks are and having the tools to manage them.

knowledgeThe course is also for those seeking to refresh out of date knowledge because they have been out of practice for a period of time and probate practice has changed significantly. You may be rusty and would welcome understanding what the new online probate application involves among other things.

Don't be afraid of being a beginnerAnd then there is the brave person who sees the need to change discipline within legal practice and wants to switch to probate work. In some ways they are like a beginner in that the substance of the law and practice will be new, but they bring with them the practical knowledge of years of practice as a lawyer – so they are used to interviewing clients, understand why risk management is essential and appreciate the need for using technology and good file management. This course will provide the tools to support them in their transition.

It is a considered and detailed modular course of materials designed to pass on the knowledge of the experienced LawSkills team in both legal content and practice.

There are also recorded interviews with experts and also product and service providers to discuss practical issues which you come across in the probate process and how others address them or can support the practitioner or their clients and beneficiaries.
