About Us

Why train with the best?

If you are looking to secure a career in law or business, the South African Law School offers you the leading edge in accredited training. Established in 1996, the school has successfully delivered specialist courses focused on vocational expediency. Expertly facilitated by qualified attorneys, the school’s specialist modules offer practical direction for legal support staff of professional practices, financial institutions, corporations and small to medium size businesses.

We also offer the most comprehensive training for Paralegals of any private institution. We have developed a unique programme that combines essential legal knowledge and “hands-on” practical training (applied skills).

As far as we are aware we are the only private school that takes its training to that level.
