Aspiration, ability and the LPMC: How this senior lawyer embarked on her next legal venture

 

Amelia Englert

‘A big part of why I did the course now had to do with COVID-19 – and wanting to explore different employment options. I didn’t have much in-depth knowledge of trust account management, which is an important topic. The course is quite technical and runs through the subject matter really carefully.’

Amelia Englert, Gracetown WA

 

 

How you will learn

Assessment

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.
