Online learning

You will be given access to the College Learning Portal from the course start date where you will access materials which will assist you to complete the course and assessments. These online materials include:

  • Preliminary readings
  • Self-assessment to assess your current legal practice management skills and capabilities

Three-day workshop

The three-day face-to-face workshop is usually held over Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The workshop is not only an opportunity for you to engage in practical exercises and tutorials with legal industry experts, it is also a great chance to mix and connect with other legal professionals.



We want you to finish the course with the knowledge and skills to be a competent and successful practice manager.

You will undertake three assessments throughout the course, either during your three-day workshop or online after the workshop concludes.

Successfully completing each assessment will provide you with the confidence that you have developed the expertise to excel at the practice of law.



The course gave me so many lightbulb moments and armed me with practical tools that I was able to immediately implement within my business. Now I have a clear and detailed business plan that is the blueprint for my firm and I am in control. I highly recommend the course to all lawyers in leadership roles, whether you have been a leading lawyer for years or are just beginning the leadership phase of your career.
