Chartered Legal Executives are qualified Lawyers who do very similar work to that of a Solicitor. The main difference between Legal Executives and Solicitors is that the training a Legal Executive completes to become qualified covers fewer subjects.
Legal Executives will usually be employed by a law firm, in a Barristers’ chambers, by government or work in the legal department of a private or public company.
It is normal for Legal Executives to specialise in an area of law such as family law, probate or conveyancing.
