In addition to the above discounts, all our courses are offered at a discount rate for our members.
In order to improve access to our courses for member organisations with limited means, we will offer, on a case by case basis, an additional place to members who have staff or volunteers attending, provided there are places left at the closing date. Members wishing to take up this opportunity should contact the Law Centre (028 9024 4401) before the course to set out their budget constraints and their need to have staff trained.
Law Centre (NI) training can offer:
- courses for both new and experienced advisers;
- courses accredited by Northern Ireland Open college Network and linked with NVQ courses;
- adaptation of courses to suit members needs.
All courses are placed in a structure of Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced.
Courses are held in both Belfast and Derry. Only venues with suitable facilities are used, and all have disabled access.
Most of the courses are delivered by Law Centre staff within their particular field of expertise. This is built upon by outside speakers where appropriate.
A standard application procedure is used to offer courses to members and interested organisations. Care must be taken when completing applications and particular attention must be paid to closing dates for applications.
Details of course fees can be found in the Training Programme and in individual course information.

Help us design better training: a short questionnaire
In today’s advice sector things can move fast and it is important for all advisers to be up to date with the changing needs of the public as a result of new legislation and guidance. The Law Centre’s role is to help advisers manage these changes through delivering timely training.
We are fully aware of the level of commitment, compassion and professionalism of the people who work within the advice sector. We want to encourage and foster this dedication through helping you keep up to date with the law. To keep our training as up to date and effective as possible, we need to keep our finger on the pulse of current demand.
We are asking people who work within the advice sector, or those whose job includes advice, to give us their views and some information for possible future training.
This will help us to tailor our training programme to fulfil the needs of the adviser and therefore the public.
All co-operation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
