Thank you very much. I found the course to be very good and the bite-sized nature of the videos to be very helpful (I would listen to them during my lunchtime). I'm probably not the usual/typical student, in that I am the CFO and Chief Operating Officer for an investment firm and was selected for CPD monitoring by a professional accounting institute, so I wanted to find something that could tangibly assist me in my work and potentially, whatever I decide to do once I hang up my calculator. I have had a fairly wide experience of HR matters (hence the drawing on experience for the earlier assignments) but never came too close to the actual legal document production (such as the claim letters). I do tend to put a lot into whatever I do and I have to say that the course was professionally very interesting and stimulating. I found that it actually took me away from the usual stresses associated with my day work to focus on something else. Analysing each situation played to one of my strengths and explaining things step-by-step as adviser rather than client was actually very satisfying. I did have to research answers and now, for example, I have a couple of medical texts on the shelves at home! I actually completed Assignment 12 when on vacation in China, and took everything along with me (ie previous answers etc that contained the facts of poor Mrs Jones's case) such was my eagerness!
Overall I am extremely pleased that I took the course. It is very good value and professionally very helpful from a wide variety of perspectives”
“I loved the course. I found it really helpful, and I loved that it challenged me. Having come from a criminal law background looking into other aspects of law has been a real eye opener.
Thanks so much for the help and advice.”
I just wanted to thank you for the paralegal course. I don't have too long left now in module 3 and I'm still really enjoying it.
In fact, so much so that I've decided to go one step further and, partly due to this course, I've been accepted to the University of Essex Online uni to do the LLB (Hons) in Law with Criminology degree! I honestly think that without doing your course I never would have realised my potential or that I could ever dream of doing a law degree.
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for a great and interesting course!
“This course is so enjoyable!
I was made redundant in November after 20 years in the same company and floundered for a while before I figured out my next move. In my old job I worked a lot with lawyers and was a compliance manager/regulator for broadcast content for a major TV broadcaster so thought I'd take my admin skills and my legal interest and combine them to try and change careers. Studying so late in life was hard at first but I'm on a roll now and will probably apply for the module 4 advanced course too once I've finished 1-3!
I'm really enjoying the course.
Thanks again .”
“Thank you so much for all your help and wonderful tutoring. I have just received my Diploma and so proud.
I will probably be starting on Level 4 shortly - so will see you soon.”
“I found the course well done, the teacher was clear, professional and funny! She was a perfect teacher! If you are interested in the activites regarding law firms... please do it, study and you will love all these matters! Now I have a Paralegal Diploma.”
“The Conveyancing qualificaton will significantly add to my Paralegal Repertoire.
The Distance Learning Course was well strucured and adapted to Home Study -particularly the Online Videos, which leaves me without any hesitation in recommending the Course and indeed the OTC to other fellow aspirants.
“Thank you for taking the time to teach us, I have really learnt a lot and I hope to put it into practise. I will recommend your course to my friends and family.
“I have paid my course fees and the re-sit fee. I don't wish to make anymore payment as I do not have a job and can't afford anymore payment. I hope to pass all my exams this time around.
So sorry I forgot to tell you, I got a job in a law firm as a Legal Secretary. I basically do different things from typing, Immigration casework, attending court etc. It's in a law firm in Tottenham, North London. I would like to know when I will get my diploma, as I need to show to my Employers. Thank you for everything and hope to hear from you.
“Wendy there is sadness in the air- because I am through with the Modules I wanted to take…. It was such a great pleasure to follow your lectures! I had a lot
of fun and I’ve learned a lot! I will add you on FB tonight and whenever you are in NL or even BE, drop me a line and I would be pleased to meet you. I am
Russian but have been living abroad for quite some time already. Germany, Brazil, Belgium and now Holland”
“I am so pleased that I finally found a job. It keeps my self esteem up and this type of position reminds me how lucky I am".
“I cant tell you how much I am enjoying this course. I just love it and sometimes its like Wendy is reading my mind!!!!!! I will be thinking
“I commenced the Distance Learning, Paralegal Specialist Conveyancing Certificate Course, and have completed all the Lectures which I found to be very comprehensive, informative and one might say user-friendly”
I just wanted to let you know that I got the job at Maples and Calder. My start date is June 1, 2010. Thank you for your assistance in completing the legal secretary programme.
All the best”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for such an informative and well structured course. I found this programme to be very, very useful to my every day job and duties within my work.
If your institution is planning to offer an upper level course to this programme, I will be very interested in learning more of such and probably consider taking such courses.
Many thanks for such a wonderful course.
“ I did a Paralegal Diploma with xxxxx. I completed approx. 30% of your module 1. I am not certain if it is of the same caliber as OTC paralegal diploma. My aim is to reach module 4 to be completely qualified…”
Hi OTC Team
“I have completed module 3 regarding Civil, Criminal and Matrimonial. I would like to thank you for your professionalism in course delivery and clarity of materials and recordings. Thanks again and I will be recommending your online course to my friends and family.
“I think your Course has been fantastic! Before I started I really knew nothing. Module one gave me a very good base and now in Module two I can see how it works in practise. The best thing is that you have made me realise what an interesting subject law really is and how it affects our lives! I will be able to go back to my notes in the future, they are great! Add to that your good sense of humour. You have had me laughing on many occasions. Don't really want to finish Module two! My aim is to sit the mature entrance exam at the Law school in June (got a place in September if I make the test). I just want to continue study and see what happens”

I really enjoyed the course - you are a very good teacher you know!”
“I am really enjoying the lectures and find the presentation very informative. I have been most impressed with the flexible nature of this course and with the unlimited support that I have been offered. I have completed the course from Thailand and have found Wendy extremely helpful when I have experienced communication challenges this end! The course was presented clearly and I have thoroughly enjoyed studying!
