Corporate and Executive Development

Corporate and Executive Development now comprises the formerly known Enterprise Unit which has been providing a range of courses for professionals in the region for almost 25 years.

The core of our activities are courses for solicitors and barristers, particularly the Professional Skills Course for trainee solicitors. However, we also provide courses for a wide range of other professionals such as human resource managers, surveyors, doctors, social workers, mental health practitioners and nursery school managers. We also provide 'tailor-made' and in house courses for firms and organisations who need them. If you have a need for legal training please contact Maureen Cooke .  

Major national and international conferences are an increasing part of our portfolio, including those on Mental Health Law, Conveyancing, Child Protection, Discrimination Law and Clinical Legal Education.
