On 16 June 2021, the Legal Services Board approved our application to amend the education standards against which applicants are assessed to become Chartered Legal Executives.
We have created an integrated set of education standards and a single application process, to allow applicants to become authorised without duplicating application and assessment requirements. Qualifying employment requirements are now aligned at three years (with two years in the specialist area of practice, immediately preceding the application). On qualification, a Chartered Legal Executive will be authorised as a Commissioner for Oaths and with a practice right if they specialise in one of the reserved or regulated activities.
We have also taken the opportunity to modernise the standards to take into account changes to working practices, including legal technology and emotional competence. This will ensure Chartered Legal Executives are prepared for the future demands of the legal sector.
