Reasons to choose Wilson Browne
A trainee from Wilson Browne Solicitors has passed the distinguished Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX) exams.
Beth Kay from the firm’s Wills and Probate team completed her Level Six CILEx exams to qualify as a Graduate member of the association (GCILEx).
Beth is the first of a number of employees at the firm taking a different route to qualify, choosing not to attend university but who started at the firm in the New Enquiries team. In 2017 Beth was learning the ropes from the ground up dealing with client’s queries on the phone and by email. She was then offered a fully funded exam place, allowing her to access specialist law training whilst working in the Wills and Probate team.
CILEx is a professional association of over 20,000 Chartered Legal Executives lawyers, paralegals and legal practitioners in England and Wales.
The support from the firm has been fantastic allowing me to study whilst gaining experience within my role in the Wills & Probate team. I am immensely proud of my achievements and thrilled to have become a Graduate member of Institute of Chartered Legal Executives (GCILEx).
Vicki Pearce, Head of Wills and Probate commented
Whilst we welcome both the traditional LPC route and the newer SQE route in the firm, Beth is one of a number of employees studying through the esteemed association of CILEx and further proof that you do not need to attend university to become a lawyer. The Partners take great pride in our decision to continue investment in training and to have passed exams of this calibre is a real achievement – we are very proud of Beth and the journey she has taken.
