Law courses for service personnel – Ray Welsby, Litigation Assistant, Blake Lapthorn

I left the Army after 22 years of service having enrolled with CILEx Law School on my first CILEx courses a year before I left the Army. These gave me the foot in the door that I needed to get into the world of law. I started off in the courts service in Fine Enforcement and then moved to work in the Commercial Recoveries team at Blake Lapthorn, a law firm with a national reputation listed in the Legal 500.

I am now a Litigation Assistant and working in an exciting and very professional environment. I owe it all to the knowledge gained through CILEx. The great thing about these qualifications is that you can present yourself for work after a relatively short period of study, and this is a huge advantage. I am still working to complete my CILEx qualification, but in the meantime I am in an excellent job in the legal world where my knowledge is appreciated.
