Are your company secretarial skills up-to-date?
Late applications are being accepted on the Certificate in Company Secretarial Law and Practice which commenced on 29 January 2019.
This course is jointly awarded by the Law Society of Ireland and the ICSA: The Governance Institute and offers a practical insight into company secretarial requirements in Ireland.
The requirement in the Companies Act 2014 obligating the directors of a company to appoint a suitably qualified individual to the position of company secretary has enhanced the company secretary’s position as the principal legal administrative and compliance officer within a company. The duties and responsibilities of the company secretary vary depending on the industry in question and the type of company involved. With an increased focus on the need for effective governance in the current climate, the position has expanded in many companies, and the scope of the role has moved beyond corporate compliance to become a focal point for advice about governance, compliance, and the conduct of business. This established course focuses on the procedural requirements of company secretarial practice and aims to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the company law framework and key corporate governance provisions under the Companies Act.
Enrolment on the course entitles students to take up an offer of a six month professional subscription of the ICSA. ICSA professional subscription is designed for company secretaries, legal counsels, lawyers and everyone with responsibility for governance, risk and compliance in organisations of all sizes, including businesses, trusts and charities. It offers access to ICSA’s supportive professional community where you will find expertise, guidance and development advice.
