FAQ

I have worked as a paralegal. Can I be exempt from a period of recognised training?

It is possible to be exempt from a period of recognised training. You need to demonstrate you have achieved the outcomes that would have been gained by completing a period of recognised training. 

We call this 'Equivalent means'. 

To apply for the exemption you must submit an Equivalent means - Period of Recognised Training application

The fee is £600. 

Chartered Legal Executives and Assistant Justices' Clerks may automatically be exempt from a period of recognised training. 

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