Hong Kong based online recruitment specialists CQrecruit are working with the Institute of Paralegals in the UK to provide a wide range of information and resources for paralegals and legal secretaries in Asia. Topics covered include the skills and qualifications required to become a paralegal, training courses which may be of interest, how to get qualified as a paralegal as well as answers to other questions that aspiring paralegals and legal secretaries may have.

Whilst the Institute of Paralegals is based in the UK, it offers international memberships, allowing paralegals and legal secretaries from Hong Kong, Singapore, China and other countries across Asia to join. This allows them to take advantage of the structured career path set out by the Institute and to develop their careers according to defined standards.

The UK National Competency Standards set out by the Institute that cover both paralegals and legal secretaries are available for download from the CQrecruit website. The CQ site also includes details of the Route to Qualification, which covers Affiliate Members, Associate Paralegals, Certified Paralegals and Qualified Paralegals. Details can be found at www.cqrecruit.com/pages/instituteofparalegals#5.

"We realise the importance of both paralegals and legal secretaries for the efficient functioning of any law firm or corporate legal department" said Pete Gordon, Managing Director of CQ. "We are therefore very pleased to be able to offer these resources to both our job seekers, to help them develop their careers, and our employers, to help them get the best from their staff."

As part of its collaboration with the Institute of Paralegals, CQrecruit is able to offer a discount of 50% on the joining fees for the Institute, available to any CQ users. To find out more visit www.cqrecruit.com/pages/instituteofparalegals#8.
