Can I have any exemptions from the PSC?

You may be granted exemptions from one or more of the core elements if you have the relevant experience and/or training which covers the same ground as the PSC's Written Standards

The PSC is designed to build on the Legal Practice Course (LPC), so completion of the LPC cannot be used as a basis to apply for exemptions from the core elements of the PSC.

If you wish to seek exemption you must submit an Equivalent means - Professional Skills Course (not CILEX) application.

The fee is £210.

Those not required to enter into a period of recognised training, for example Chartered Legal Executives and Justices' Clerks' Assistants, are automatically exempt from the electives.
