and understand the consequences arising from a
poorly drafted notice.
The course will also see experts examining discrete
areas of enforcement and the particular concerns
relating to each sector. Data protection, freedom of

Practical skills workshops are an integral part of this
certificate and will assist participants with honing
their drafting skills, particularly when drafting
letters of instruction and enforcement notices. There
is a bonus module for non-lawyers to assist them
with legal literacy skills.
