‘Train To Be a Lawyer In Just One Year’: Too Good To Be True?

In February, I mentioned an advert for the London College of Law (not to be confused with the College of Law) in an article for the Guardian. I spotted the ad again last week in the Evening Standard (see below).

In case you were wondering, the London College of Law’s “one year” route to legal qualification is via the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX) path. Fellowships from CILEX require candidates to complete not one, but six years of law-related work and study – though the tutored element of the qualification need only take one year.
