Taking advantage of CILEx’s flexibility – Louise Trueman

My first career was in retail where I managed a number of high street clothing stores. I developed an interest in customer service as well as management skills and was taken on by my father’s law firm as office and marketing manager.

I did this for three years before deciding that I wanted to develop my role in the firm by learning about the law. I have always been inspired by my Dad and his success and enthusiasm for his work.

Studying by distance learning through CILEx Law School is ideal for me because as well as working full-time I have three young children aged 2, 7 and 10. Being able to learn and work and look after my children is a real godsend.

I started with the CILEx Level 3 Certificate in Law and Practice in Probate Practice as this is the area that I am working in. The courses have given me great confidence and I am now fee earning in this area. I intend to continue studying to achieve the CILEx Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice and then go on to Level 6.
