More about Law Training

Richard Eaton aims to combine his experience of legal practice with the experience he has acquired as a lecturer in law to provide pragmatic law training courses, workshops and seminars.

The study of law is informative, fascinating and stimulating.

The ability to analyse complex problems, to argue in a reasoned manner and to seek rational conclusions, while at the same time retaining the ability to criticise those conclusions, are the results of a legal training. Law students are encouraged to study a diversity of legal topics and to evaluate the law in the context of changing social conditions.

During a course of legal studies, students should acquire an ability to think clearly, develop a reasoned argument and communicate it effectively. A legal qualification indicates that a student has successfully completed a course of study involving academic discipline and the development of analytical skills.

A knowledge and understanding of the law is a necessary precaution in an increasingly sophisticated and litigious society. This is particularly the case in the context of business activities. Both employers and employees cannot afford to ignore the dangers inherent in day-to-day commercial operations. Litigation is time-consuming, expensive and stressful. It can prove fatal to a business reputation and yet it can arise out of simple ignorance or administrative error.
