CLS representatives to attend university law fairs

CILEx Law School will be attending two more university law fairs this week to give students more information about starting their career in law.

We will have representatives in Manchester today (12.30pm to 4pm) and at the University of Essex on Thursday (6.15pm to 8pm) to explain how studying with CILEx Law School offers cost-effective and flexible routes into the legal profession.

These are the latest events we have attended during law fair season, with plenty of interest in our stand at events in Nottingham, Sussex and Hull.

The final event we will be attending this month is the London Law Fair. That takes place on Wednesday, 28 November, from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.

Many law students are set on qualifying as a solicitor or barrister by doing the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC). That is despite the considerable cost of these routes for students who will have already accrued up to £50,000 of debt as an undergraduate, and with no guarantee of a training contract or pupillage at the end of their additional studies.

In contrast, a law graduate taking a job as a paralegal and studying for the CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma could feasibly qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer in three years – at a fraction of the cost of doing the LPC or BPTC.

Read how some of our students have progressed their careers by studying for a Graduate Fast-track Diploma after doing a law degree.
