Criminal legal executive vs solicitor apprenticeWatch
Solicitor apprenticeship seems like a better idea but there fairly new so not many are around plus there is a competitive selection process: video interview, face to face interview and an essay question that you cannot prepare for. A universety can accept hundreds of students whilst a law firm would probably want only one apprentice.
I'm interested in criminal law. Do legal executives specialising in criminal law are able to appear in court? Do you think employers prefer a solicitor or leg executive for criminal law?
Also, I want my own law firm when older. Is This possible with being a legal executive? If I were to cross qualify as a solicitor, would I have to pay for LPC?
