What is a Chartered Legal Executive?
What services does a Chartered Legal Executive provide?
In addition, a Chartered Legal Executive may appear in County Court arbitrations and before tribunals (at the discretion of the relevant Court or Tribunal) or if employed by the Local Authority or other Housing Management Organisation (exercising Local Authority housing functions) can exercise rights of audience in the County Court or Magistrates Court on their behalf. This means that the rights of the audience are very much more limited than those of a solicitor.
In addition, a Chartered Legal Executive drafts legal documents, analyses complex materials, negotiates with opposing parties and has contact with other legal professionals on behalf of their client.
