ILEX students celebrate their exam results
Aspiring Legal Executive lawyers students across England and Wales celebrated receiving their exam results yesterday, despite the fact that many will not be university graduates.
Over 8,000 ILEX exams were sat this summer. Receiving their results from the Institute of Legal Executive (ILEX) were students who took around 5,500 exams in June for Level 3 ILEX units (which are set and assessed at A-level equivalent), along with those who took over 2,700 Level 6 units (which are set and assessed at Honours Degree equivalent).
Head of Awards at ILEX, Alison Hollyer, said: “Congratulations to all ILEX students who passed their exams yesterday. Everyone at ILEX is immensely proud of you all. ILEX students continue to demonstrate the success of our flexible, innovative and accessible route into law. Many of whom are already working in the legal sector as they study.”
As university fees rise rapidly, more and more law students are looking for other routes into a legal career. With over 70 accredited centres across England and Wales offering the ILEX academic qualifications to become qualified paralegals or fully-fledged lawyers, ILEX is proving to be the best route to a career in law.
The entire ILEX route to become a lawyer costs no more than £7,000 and 75% of employers paying for staff to study with ILEX. This is much more cost effective than a three-year law degree followed by additional postgraduate training costs of around £12,900 to become a solicitor or £15,750 to be a barrister.
