Legal profession: the role of chartered legal executives. Podcast with Diane Burleigh

leave a comment »

The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The Institute sets standards for and regulates the activities of legal executive, who play an important role in the delivery of legal services.
Those who left school but decided for what ever reason not to go to university, but who nonetheless wish to work in a legal environment can – by joining the Chartered Institute and studying the different courses it offers – become qualified in specific areas of legal expertise.
They can also become fully qualified solicitors (though not barristers).
A major attraction of this way of entering the legal profession is that you can work while you qualify – and thus avoid much of the expense now associated with obtaining a professional legal qualification.
You can find out more about the Chartered Institute by going to their website at http://www.cilex.org.uk/.

In this podcast I talk with the Chief Executive of CILEX about the challenges facing the legal profession and the opportunities provided for Legal Executives in the rapidly developing legal world.
