Who books our training?

Course length


Experienced lawyers  |  Paralegals  |  Recently qualified lawyers  | Other professionals offering Private Client advice

Following our courses you will gain a clear and thorough understanding of the topic and be fired up ready to apply a wealth of highly relevant and practical material to your day to day practise.

Courses can be tailored to meet you needs

We find that 3 hours is a good length.  It enables the delegate to really get to grips with a topic, ask questions and the tutor can usually include a practical example.

What else can we offer?

  • Shorter topics of 1-1.5hr suitable for a conference slot, for example.
  • 5 hour ‘all-day’ courses also available if you want to make a day of it.

Flexibility is the key so please just ask if you are not sure about the length of the course you’d like or if you’re unsure about combining topics – we will be pleased to recommend something to suit your team’s training needs.

Private Client is our specialism so we can provide a full suite of topics within our portfolio.

Training testamonial

  • "We find it extremely useful to have a bespoke event run and designed by Gill Steel because we get much more out of this type of training, for example, we find that our team members are much more ready to ask questions than they would at a larger seminar. We will have no hesitation in booking with LawSkills again."

    Simon Cook Head of Wills, Trusts & Probate, Willans LLP
  • As to quality versus quantity of CPD this is a bugbear since it becomes difficult for the seasoned practitioner to find enticing courses to go to.  Lawskills' ones are always terrific though!!!

    Peter Cox
  • As always, Gill provides excellent notes and useful tips in a practical and clear way.
