Natalie DuckettL - Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice

Posted: 14th of May 2014 by Tamara

When I left school after my GCSEs I contacted various companies concerning a job. I was offered a role at a local law firm as an office junior to cover maternity leave.

As I became more experienced within my job I became more interested in law and this is why I decided to study with CILEx.


I have now completed the Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice and also the Level 6 Professional Higher Diploma in Law and Practice. I am currently a Graduate Member of CILEx and will be able to apply to become a Fellow in August of this year. I am employed by Bartlett Gooding and Weelen as a fee earner specialising mainly in conveyancing. I also have knowledge of wills and probate and employment law. My qualifications are recognised by my employer and my knowledge which I have obtained during my CILEX studies is used on a daily basis within the work I carry out.

The CILEx qualification is well structured. Level 3 gives you an opportunity to study ten subjects and to decide upon which area you would like to practise in. The people at CILEX Law School are very helpful and so are the tutors. The revision days are very useful and give you a chance to discuss difficult points with other people.

I feel that the CILEX course is a great way to obtain a qualification. The qualification is recognised by all law firms and is a great way to progress without the need to attend a college or university. I would strongly recommend the course.
