Working in an in-house legal department – Jessica Atkinson-Ryan

June 16th, 2018|

I had a place at university to begin in 2010, however, due to a change in personal circumstances I decided it was not appropriate for me to go, so I started work in customer service. I then applied for a job as a Customer Claims Assistant in the legal department of the travel company I was working in, dealing with personal injury complaints from customers. I heard about the CILEx route to qualifying as a lawyer through my employer who had funded the studies of other members of the department via the CILEx route, and I enrolled on my first courses at the age of 20.

Working in an in-house legal department – Catherine Miles

June 16th, 2018|

I first properly got into law as a legal secretary in 2005 at Thomas Eggar LLP. The first manager I worked for was a trainee Chartered Legal Executive and there was also a Senior Chartered Legal Executive in our team. Talking to them and observing their work gave me an insight into the work that Chartered Legal Executives do and made me realise that it is not just a choice between being either a solicitor or support staff if you want to work in law.
