Our Certificate in Professional Legal Studies has been specifically tailored for students who wish to practice as a Legal Executive in the Republic of Ireland. The work of a legal executives is as varied as that of the solicitor with whom they work. This work can be catergorised as either contentious (for example personal injury litigation, debt collection and family law) or non-contentious (for example, advising on the making of a will or conveyancing). Legal Executives regularly deal with clients, file management, processing litigation, attendance in court, preparing papers to go to barristers, attendance at consultations and settlement meetings.
