Law Graduates are not always aware of all their options after leaving University.  Vice Chair of the CILEx Liverpool branch and previous Law Academy student Danielle talks of her experience to highlight the CILEx Graduate Fast Track Diploma route:

"Prior to finishing university and commencing my employment I had not heard of CILEx. I understood that the only (and most expensive way) to become a lawyer was to undertake the Law Society qualifications after your degree and try and obtain a full time training contract.

After 3 years of study and a whole lot of debt I was frustrated to find that I still required further studying (and more debt) and that qualification was not guaranteed as I was still required to obtain the elusive training contract.

Then a friend of mine advised me about CILEx. I was advised that as a law graduate I was able to become a lawyer without the need for a training contract. I therefore commenced my studies at the Law Academy in Liverpool. I undertook 6 modules to become a graduate Legal Executive and after 5 years employment* qualified to become a Chartered Legal Executive and have the letters FCILEx after my name.

Many law graduates are not aware that they can still qualify by becoming a Chartered Legal Executive and therefore achieve the same career progression as a solicitor. Chartered Legal Executives are now able to practice in their own right and become partners in law firms.

I am thankful that I became a Chartered Legal Executive and would encourage other law graduates to do the same. My firm actively encourage and support both law graduates and paralegals who wish to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive.

In addition to this I am delighted to have been appointed as the Vice-Chair of the Liverpool branch of CILEx.  As part of the committee I provide a link between students and head office and in addition to organising various social events, provide support and advice to students in the process of applying for fellowship." 

Danielle Blaylock is a Chartered Legal Executive at MSB Law LLP and specialises in Civil Litigation.

*following changes since Danielle studied, the GFT Diploma now involves 3 units of study and 3 years qualifying employment - read more HERE
