Aim and Objectives

Technology is becoming increasingly important in the world of legal practice, and there is a multitude of mobile apps that can be of benefit to solicitors. The 12 Apps of Christmas online course will help solicitors learn about apps for tablet devices – in just 30 minutes per day.

New content is released incrementally over the duration of the course which will allow you the flexibility to learn about apps in your own time and space and to share and draw on the knowledge and experience of your colleagues in our discussion forums.
