Having completed an LLB at the University of Kent, followed by the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law whilst training at London based Legal 500 firm, Eve has first-hand experience of the pressures and risk of financing the LPC. Eve has been a passionate advocate of alternative routes to qualifying since discovering the benefits offered by the CLC and CILEx qualifications. When Eve was doing her LLB, only the costly Legal Practice (LPC) route was heavily promoted and there were no CILEx or CLC study centres in the region hence her decision to establish a quality, innovative and accessible lawyer qualifications centre here in Canterbury.
Eve is a well-known legal trainer delivering Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training for Solicitors, Chartered Legal Executives and senior figures in Local Government.
