Who are Law Academy students?

As we are now beginning our enrolment process for September, I thought it would be interesting to give an insight as to who is a typical Law Academy student. The short answer is, there is no typical student. 

Our students vary in age, experience and background. We have an average of 150 - 180 students enrolled with us during an academic year, studying either level 3, level 6, Graduate Fast track or single subject courses. 

Some students have come straight from 6th form at school or college and are at the very start of their journey. Others have done previous studying such as the secretarial course and now wish to progress whilst looking to get a foot in the door in the legal sector. Most find, when searching for employment, the fact they have shown initiative by embarking on the CILEx course demonstrates their commitment and seriousness to their chosen career path - something employers may find very interesting. 

A lot of students are already in the legal environment perhaps working as a paralegal, secretary, admin or assistant.  This type of student has to juggle a busy job, a social life, family commitments and studying for their CILEx course. This is a big ask but they cope. They can see the benefits that await them when they qualify and with hard work and determination, they get there. Most report back about promotions, pay rises and recognition as they progress through the qualifications with us. 

Law Graduates are generally with us for 1 - 2 years doing the Graduate Fast Track course using this route to become a qualified Chartered Legal Executive rather than the LPC and training contract route to becoming a solicitor. We are seeing more and more Law Graduates joining us as the years go by. Presumably the immense difference in fees is a big attraction to most too. 

A career change at any stage of life is another part of our cohort. People who stumble across the CILEx route and ourselves realise what a beneficial and flexible study route this is. 

Currently we have students employed by many many Law firms such as Hill Dickinson, Quindell (Silverbeck Rymer), Hampson Hughes, Slater and Gordon, Parabis, 2020 Legal, Lees, Fletchers, Forster Dean  and many more. Some firms advertise their vacancies through us to our students.  We also have students from the legal departments of Merseytravel, Liverpool City Council, United Utilities and Sefton Council. We have staff from the HMCS.  The list could go on and on. 

For those students from further a field, they study level 3 units via our e-learning system with a personal Law Academy tutor.

We do have students who are not in the legal profession who are as warmly welcomed as those who are. 

The traits that are prevalent  in all Law Academy students however are motivation, hard working, eagerness and commitment. If you have these - then the CILEx route at the Law Academy could be right for you.
