FOUR talented school leavers have been given an opportunity to become qualified lawyers without having to gain a law degree.

Blake Morgan’s south coast offices have recruited the apprentices who will study the CILEx Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services at Highbury College in Portsmouth.

It is offered by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).

It will award them with a nationally-recognised qualification which could lead to them qualifying as lawyers.

Kevin Chard, Blake Morgan’s training manager said: ‘For Blake Morgan, the key advantage of the advanced apprenticeship route is access to the ‘not going to university’ school or college leaver market.

‘We intend to use the scheme to help us to develop our Chartered Legal Executives, solicitors, and partners of the future.’
