This exciting programme forms the first stage in becoming a Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer, and is set at A Level equivalent status.
The course is run part-time over two years, one afternoon per week, allowing you to work while you study. Once you have completed your Level 3 qualification you will be able to apply to become an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).
Taking the Chartered Legal Executive lawyer route means you can earn as you learn and gain valuable practical experience. In addition to qualifying employment, the qualifications that you will need to achieve in order to practice are:
Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice
Level 6 Professional Higher Diploma in Law and Practice
Studying A Level Law at South Devon College helped me decide what I wanted to do as a career, and therefore what I wanted to study at university. We benefited hugely from termly trips, and we even shadowed a judge, which gave me a huge insight into what my future career could entail. My teacher, Kay Harding, is excellent, and went above and beyond in helping me revise, improve exam technique and keep me up to date on current legal affairs. She was also great at giving me advice even outside of College time.Callum Priestley
