This one-day course will provide you with a good working understanding of ‘the City’ and how it functions on a day-to-day basis. You will learn about the different markets, the institutions, workers and financial instruments. You will also learn more about the role of lawyers in City transactions.
Given its nature, the course is largely instructive, but you will be encouraged to contribute to the sessions with your own knowledge and experience. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.
This course is offered as one of the elective modules of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority (SRA)’s Professional Skills Course (PSC) and, as such, is designed to be taken prior to admission as a solicitor. The course is, however, also relevant to recently qualified lawyers and paralegals, who are seeking to develop their skills in this growing practice area.
