Legal Courier And Messenger

Why Attend

A courier is a messenger, but not necessarily of verbal communications. He documents or goods from one party to another. A legal courier or court messenger typically transport legal and other documents or evidence, often between a lawyer and the court or between law offices. He might work independently, for a law firm, or seek employment with a courier service. They often deliver items a law firm is unwilling to entrust to other means of delivery, such as highly sensitive evidence or confidential case information. Legal couriers may even run miscellaneous errands. In some cases, they may be called upon to actually file documents with the court, negotiating the labyrinths of courthouses to safely and timely deliver pleadings to the proper court division and return filed copies to the law office. This course aims at polishing the skills and strengthen their capabilities so that they can perform their duties with great diligence.
