The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) is the professional body governing Chartered Legal Executive practitioners. If you study through the CILEx route you can obtain a flexible and cost effective legal qualification. The course is suitable for you if you are a graduate, legal support staff or mature students with family commitments.
If you are considering a career in law and want a flexible way of studying, CILEx is the perfect route for you. Once fully qualified as a Legal Executive, you can have the same career opportunities as a solicitor with the potential to become a judge or run your own law firm.
The courses available at Coleg Gwent cover a wide range of law and legal practice units designed to give you a comprehensive grounding on which to build academic or vocational progression.
CILEx courses range from £1050 to £1550 or you can study the law units separately at a cost of £550.
Designed for the increasing numbers of students who have a law degree (or equivalent) but who see the CILEx route as an effective and cheaper route to qualification.
To achieve this qualification, candidates must attain:
- 2 level 6 practice units (one of which must match a subject they have studied in their degree)
- L6 Client Care Skills
Coleg Gwent’s CILEx results are constantly above the national pass rates for a wide variety of subjects at both Level 3 and Level 6 including criminal law, land law, tort law, conveyancing, client care and legal research.
