Corporate Governance for Paralegals

Expand your knowledge of corporate governance and better understand how important it is to the business you are assisting.

Oftentimes, a paralegal or administrative assistant who is assigned to support the corporate secretary does not receive much background information about the specifics of the position or about the roles and responsibilities of the office of the corporate secretary. From this program, you will learn both the theoretical and practical aspects of delivering support services to the corporate secretary of our organization as well as the importance of this role to the corporation's board of directors, executive management team and shareholders.
