Royal Charter for Legal Excellence

The Institute of Legal Executives (ILEX) has been granted a Royal Charter for the important role its members play in the provision of legal services. For Selena Hinds of Raworths, the honour conferred by the Royal Charter is of especial significance because she was one of the first legal executives in England to be appointed to partnership status when the regulations changed in 2009.

Selena’s appointment as a partner at Raworths two years ago earned her an invitation to the House of Commons at a special event for the first one hundred legal executives to be made partner at their law firms.

Selena, one of three legal executives at the firm with one trainee, is delighted with the news: “From later this year we will be able to refer to ourselves as Chartered Legal Executives and this imparts greater importance to our role within the legal profession. With the introduction of Alternative Business Structures and non-law-centred companies being able to offer legal services, it is important for the public to know who is qualified to deal with legal matters and the raising of our status is another way in which the public can make informed judgements on where to purchase their legal services.
