organisation that is; a professional body, a front line regulator,
an awarding body.
Being regulated by ILEX
Professional Standards (IPS) is a first-rate membership benefit
in itself. Regulations brings with it respect and recognition, it
differentiates you from those in the legal profession that do not
belong to a recognised professional body and ensures high standards
of quality from CILEx professionals.
