Graduate Fast-track Diploma
The CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma is for law
and Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) graduates who want to qualify as
lawyers without undertaking the more traditional and costlier Legal
Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC)
routes. There is also no requirement to secure a
training contract or pupillage when taking the CILEx route to
qualification. Instead of qualifying as a solicitor or barrister,
graduates qualify and practise as Chartered Legal Executive
Increasingly on a level playing field with
solicitors, Chartered Legal Executive lawyers can now become
judges, coroners, advocates and partners in law firms.
On successfully completing the Graduate
Fast-track Diploma you can upgrade from CILEx Associate Member to
CILEx Graduate Member.
Courses can be studied full time, part time
or via distance learning, leaving you free to work in legal
practice and gain the necessary qualifying employment to becoming a
Chartered Legal Executive lawyer and a CILEx Fellow.
