I am a Chartered Legal Executive. Am I exempt from a period of recognised training?

You may be exempt from a period of training if you have: 

  • satisfied the requirements of the academic stage through study or exemptions granted 
  • completed the Legal Practice Course (LPC) 
  • been engaged as a Chartered Legal Executive in the practice of law. 

You are automatically exempt from the elective elements of the Professional Skills Course (PSC). The mandatory elements of the PSC must be completed prior to applying for admission to the roll. 

When you apply to be admitted as a solicitor you will need to provide us with evidence of your qualification as a Chartered Legal Executive. 

Further information can be found in our Equivalent means information pack.
