If I’d not done CILEx, I would have taken the LPC instead, I wouldn’t have had a choice. I would have put myself in more debt because I was not willing to give up on my law career. But with CILEx, I was able to take a debt-free route. The CILEx journey has had challenges, the portfolio was daunting, and I gained work experience through several different firms. Some roles didn’t get me qualifying experience. I qualified in March 2019. My title at Direction Law is Chartered Legal Executive
in Residential Conveyancing. I’ve been in my current role since January 2018 at the deep end and fee earning.
