Law and Practice, CILEx Level 3 Certificate / Diploma
This course leads to Associate Membership of Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) status.
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.
The CILEx route to qualification allows incremental progression through different membership grades. It is therefore a great way for those working in the legal sector to achieve relevant knowledge, skills and ultimately progress in their careers.
The CILEx Level 3 Certificate requires students to study 5 units of study, which are each assessed by CILEx. The CILEx Level 3 Professional Diploma requires students to study 10 areas of law and legal practice, which are each assessed by CILEx.
