YOUR TUTOR

 

Amanda Hamiliton 

CEO National Association of Licensed Paralegals

Managing Director AH Paralegal

 

After graduating from my Law Degree in 1982, I started working as a paralegal within an international law firm in London's West End. I quickly found there were practical skills I needed to excell at my job. 

This course focuses on the practical skills you'll need to perform your duties and will build your confidence to go freelance.

Alongside tutoring, I run and manage NALP Training and NALP Membership body, avodocating for its members and getting paralegals recongnised for the work that they do.

If you have any questions about the course, please do get in touch. I'd be happy to help!

I have recently completed the Paralegal Training and found the course both informative and enjoyable.The contents of the course are well explained and the format of using the online tutorials in conjunction with the written materials makes it easy to follow and provides the learner with a well-rounded knowledge.

 

The course covers all of the aspects of Paralegal work and the freelance documents provided on completion of the course are most useful. I would very much recommend this course.
