Presented by Stetson University, the NALS Online Basic Legal Training Course Provides the knowledge expected of persons working in a law office as a lawyer’s assistant and will prepare you to take the NALS ALS exam.

Do you not have a NALS chapter near you?  No problem as we bring this often locally held program to you through the online version. This program will be delivered in conjunction with the prestigious Stetson University, and institution with a top 100 law school.  This 20-week program covers written communication, ethics, and numerous areas of legal knowledge. The program will utilize Stetson’s Blackboard Learning Management System to facilitate learning with excellent supplemental materials.

  • This is a Basic Legal Training Course from a university with a top 100 law school.
  • We use real lawyers as instructors.
  • Our materials use and amplify the curriculum from NALS and we prepare our students to take the NALS national certification test.
  • Our course includes vignettes and practical experience to reinforce and amplify the material. Live contact with our instructors is built in to the program.
  • Our materials are interesting and engaging.
  • We include all the major legal knowledge areas as well as a hefty dose of written communication skill-building.
  • Our course uses the text, Basic Manual for the Lawyer’s Assistant, written by NALS. (Lawyer’s Assistant is a “new” term for legal secretary, though legal secretary is more commonly known.) The course also has a student study guide that compliments the text.

Students gain access to Stetson’s password-protected Blackboard learning management system to see PowerPoint Presentations for each lesson. On the site there is also legal terminology, review questions, and relevant stories that reinforce each lesson. Chapter quizzes further measure student understanding of concepts and applications.

Regular contact with instructors is built in to the program. Students are not sent into a course that is on autopilot — instructors and Stetson program administrators take a personal interest in each student.

This course is for you if you are in a law office and want to expand your potential of if you are not currently in the field but want to have a career as a lawyer’s assistant.
