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 excel 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.
