Public sector training & workshops

Clear, targeted and engaging training for public sector professionals

We believe that one of our primary roles as public sector lawyers is to empower our clients through practical, hands on training sessions and workshops that help their organisations come to terms with often complex legislation and the raft of associated regulations which govern their daily operations.

With a substantial number of our senior lawyers having worked in local or state government agencies, we are uniquely placed to recognise the pain points and provide clear, targeted and engaging training modules and seminars for public sector employees.

The feedback on the utility of our sessions is very positive and we are proud of the long term training relationships we have built up with many of our clients.

For a discussion on your training needs and how LTL can help, please contact Dr Lindsay Taylor on 02 8235 9701.
