Law and Practice, CILEx Graduate Diploma (Fast-Track)
This course enables Law Graduates to become qualified lawyers as Chartered Legal Executives.
You may then go on to become partners in law firms, qualify as Solicitors (without having to undertake a two-year training contract) and also apply for judicial appointments.
To qualify graduates must complete the Graduate Fast Track Diploma and three years of qualifying employment (work of a legal nature supervised by a Solicitor, Legal Executive or Licensed Conveyancer), one year of which must be after completing the Diploma.
The Graduate Fast Track Diploma consists of one Professional Skills unit, assessed by coursework, and two areas of Legal Practice, assessed by exams. This can be done in one year over two evenings a week, or over several years of studying one evening a week, to suit your commitments and goals. All areas of Legal Practice are offered in a two year rotation, except Civil Litigation and the professional skills unit, which are available every year.
Units offered include:
- Client Care Skills
- Civil Litigation
- Probate Practice
- Family Practice
As a Weston College CILEx learner you will be taught by highly trained staff who have experience within the industry, including several with experience as CILEx examiners. Our lessons were recently rated as outstanding by Ofsted. You will also be on an easy commuter route to Bristol and the South West with fantastic transport links. CILEx qualifications are an opportunity to become a qualified Chartered Legal Executive, an authorised person under the Legal Services Act 2007 able to undertake almost all the activities of other types of Qualified Lawyer, such as Solicitors. Chartered Legal Executives can then become partners of law firms, become Advocates, qualify also as solicitors and even become Judges.

“My experience in studying for CILEx Level 6 qualifications at Weston College has been excellent. My tutor in particular was extremely knowledgeable on the CILEx qualifications and was invaluable during preparation for exams. He puts in a huge amount of effort and I think I speak for all of my cohort in saying that we were extremely fortunate to have him involved in our education.” James Dunster, Clarke Willmott Solicitors – Level 6 Graduate Fast Track
