The ILEX route is just another route into law. What, exactly, do you want to do? Do you want to be a lawyer in a few years, or do you want to be a paralegal? You can become a lawyer by working up through paralegal jobs at a company with an ILEX qualification or you can stay at para legal level. If you study the GDL and LPC at somewhere like College of Law or BPP you can go straight in as a lawyer at a law firm.
Can you explain your situation. What are you doing right now? What exactly, are your studying? What do you want to do, where at?
Also, have you spoken to careers advisers at ILEX, or at BPP/College of Law. You can…even if you don’t go to these institutions… and they are helpful!

Does anyone rate ILEX? Everyone always talks about trainees, so what am I if I am going through ILEX, just a lowly paralegal? Even though I am working very hard studying while holding down a full time job. Plus it isn’t as if I am studying at any easier level than uni students. I’m currently third year ILEX at honours degree level working my butt off!!
