Regulation of Chartered Legal Executives
CILEx Regulation regulates members of the
Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). It
oversees the education, qualification and practice standards of
Chartered Legal Executive lawyers and other CILEx members and
ensures they maintain proper standards of professional and personal
conduct. CILEx Regulation embodies the principle that legal
professional bodies like CILEx should separate their
regulatory and leadership functions so that clients and the public
can have confidence in their legal advisors.
CILEx Regulation works with CILEx to ensure CILEx qualifications
are at the right level and are appropriate to the work CILEx
members carry out. CILEx Regulation also aims to ensure
members are fully aware of their obligations to clients,
colleagues, the courts and the public. When necessary, CILEx
Regulation deals with complaints against CILEx members.

legal profession and 3 are professional members who are Legal
Executives. The chair of the board is an independent member, Alan
