We receive a lot of favourable feedback from our students and their employers. Here is a selection of what some past and present students have to say....

 “I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Law Academy to anyone thinking of studying CILEx”

“I've always found the staff at the Law Academy extremely helpful and efficient”

“I feel fully supported by the Law Academy in my CILEx studies and would recommend studying there to anyone.”

“Everyone at the academy is very helpful, professional and friendly making the time spent there enjoyable.”


I would not hesitate to recommend The Law Academy to anyone who was considering studying law. It's easy for an establishment to teach a particular subject, but another when that establishment takes the time to build relationships with students and provide whatever support is necessary to help them their course which The Law Academy does.


Thanks for all your support with my ILEX over the years, I would highly recommend the LawAcademy its been a great 4 years.


Ilex is the most realistic and cost-efficient approach to law for me and the tutors at The Law Academy encouraged me and sometimes tailored certain aspects for me to make Ilex status achievable.


Thank you I am really happy with how my year went, my knowledge has expanded in so many areas, I feel that Gillian, Helen and Sue are a great credit to ilex and they really helped me and gave me extra help when I was struggling due to failing my exams as I was unfocused and my mind being on other things.


Thank you to The Law Academy for finding an outstanding tutor. This tutor, made you think outside the Course book, enabling me to better understand the reasoning behind the law in the subject. There was never anything boring about this particular tutor's classes, everyone got involved.


Staff are approachable and have had no problems. Just if you could get someone to do the actual exams for us that would be great :)


The Law Academy provides a valuable service to all its students. My tutor this year was well organised, prepared and had a thorough knowledge of his subject. From day one we were prepared for the exam focusing not just on learning the law but also how to apply it to an exam scenario


Tutors provided excellent support, were approachable at all times and understood the balance between study and other aspects of a busy modern life. I would again highly recommend The Law Academy.


Keep doing what you're doing, it works for me!!


Employment Law knowledge is often gained through the completion of a CIPD qualification and then updated as the years and changes happen at free seminars etc. As a HR professional I decided to sign up for the ILEX Level 6 Employment Law course to ensure my knowledge was not only up to date but accurate.

The ILEX course has allowed me to do this as well as giving me the confidence to know that when I make a decision it is based on a legal statute with case law to support. This course is demanding but has been well delivered and the format of the programme has allowed me to attend one evening per week for two hours whilst studying in my own time.

In terms of value it has been money well spent and far outweighs free seminars with a glass of wine! Absolutely invaluable for anyone in a HR role where they are dealing with employment relations issues regularly.


Danny Hart | HR Manager Cammell Laird

I was looking for a course that would help me gain more knowledge about the law and to enable me to develop new skills and to obtain further qualifications to enhance my career. I felt that this course of study was exactly what I was looking for. The course has enabled me to study part time while still working full time.

It has been very beneficial to my day job and the theory part of the course has give me a better understanding of the relevant issues which has boosted my confidence and made me a better employee. As a deaf person, I am grateful to The Law Academy and its employees for all their help and support.

They have been understanding of my needs from day one and have gone out of their way to ensure that these needs have been met, they arranged for a sign language interpreter to assist me and they carried out deaf awareness training for their tutors. I cannot speak highly enough for the kindness and assistance the staff have showed to me and no doubt it has been of great assistance to my personal development.


Studying for my Ilex exams through The Law Academy has made the experience of combining a legal qualification with full-time employment far less daunting. Having the support network of staff, tutors and fellow students throughout the academic year, and particularly leading up to the exams, has been an invaluable resource.


This is now my third year of studying with the Law Academy, the college offers a wide range of courses, delivered by supportive and professional tutors. There is a great support network in place both with the practical side of studying but also with the all important exam tips and techniques. The college also has close ties with the local ILEX branch so its a good way of networking whilst also having fun at the same time.

Most importantly though, the staff and tutors are on hand with advice and assistance and are always willing to go the extra mile to help students. For example the Level 6 courses I'm interested in next year are not on the current timetable, however the college are doing their best to arrange for a flexible learning route for me and are also trying to get a tutor from a local university to be on hand to offer support and guidance


After just completing my second year of Level 3, I can only commend the Law Academy for the quality of its teaching and approach. I have found the tutors to be highly knowledgeable in their field, well organised, approachable and supportive. The fact that the majority of the tutors are also in practice themselves; makes them fully appreciative of the demands of balancing a full time job and part time study.

The support from all the directors, behind the scenes, who are quick to deal with queries and champion the student's cause, is also invaluable. The variety of subjects available, only serves to remind what an interesting and multi-disciplinary subject law is. I would highly recommend the Law Academy and its courses, and as someone who has taken on the study of ILEX, to hopefully help facilitate a future change of career, it is an excellent introduction to the world of the law.


Can I just thank you for arranging the two staff events of the Wills Workshop and the Consumer Rights course. Both were extremely useful and I was even able to use the consumer rights while in Comet the very next day. The fact that they are of personal use made it all so worthwhile and enjoyable yet so informative for such a short course.Again many thanks and any other courses like that would be very much appreciated. 


I think The Law Acadamy is the best place I've studied so far. Everyone who works there is really understanding, helpful, professional and treats you equally.
