From an early age Millicent knew that she wanted to work in the legal profession and entered the profession as a legal secretary in a firm in King’s Bench Walk, Temple, with the intention of qualifying as a Legal Executive, as it was an ILEX requirement (now known as the Chartered Legal Executives (CILEx)) at the time for students to be working in a legal practice.
Millicent qualified as an Associate of the institute in 1978 and was admitted as a Fellow of the Institute in 1991, studying at evening classes and by distance learning to complete her qualification. In the intervening years she gained fee earning experience in many areas of law, in particular debt collection, insolvency and commercial litigation.
Millicent has worked as a chartered legal executive in the private, corporate in house and public sectors. The majority of work as a chartered legal executive in the private and corporate in house sectors was commercial litigation and contract work in the financial sector.
Millicent is now Vice-President of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx), soon to be promoted to President.
