Level 6 Single Subjects

CILEx Level 6 Single Subject Certificate

This course enables students to achieve a recognised national qualification in an individual subject of law, legal practice or legal skill. The certificates can be useful if you want to change to working in a new area of the law, take a 'refresher' course, or get a stand-alone qualification in a distinct subject area. If you want to dual qualify as a solicitor then these certificates can also be added to your CILEx level 6 qualification to build on your existing academic studies.

These qualifications recognise candidates' skills and ability in a law specialism. They are best suited for those who do not wish to go on and become full Chartered Legal Executive lawyers, but who want recognition for their skills in a specific professional area of law and legal practice.

The qualification is a valuable asset to any professional paralegal or individual working in a legal firm and specialising in an area of law or legal practice which requires a qualification that demonstrably recognises their abilities at this level in that specific area.

The qualification will, however, also act as an important milestone for those candidates who do wish to move on to becoming Chartered Legal Executives and Fellows of CILEx. The Level 6 Diploma in Law and Practice is built up from candidates' achievements in the Certificate qualification, and candidates will be awarded certificates in Law for each unit of their achievement towards the final Diploma.

For units 1 - 21, the qualification is endorsed with the legal area in which it is undertaken, eg CILEx Level 6 Certificate in Law (Contract Law).

For those candidates specifically interested in perfecting legal skills, achievement of both units 22 and 23 is awarded as CILEx Level 6 Certificate in Law (Legal Skills). Because of the size of these units, candidates cannot be awarded the CILEx Level 6 Certificate in Law upon achievement of a single skills unit. The structure of the qualification is as follows:

CILEx Level 6 Single Subject Certificate

If the candidate achieves 1 unit from units 1 – 21 above, they will achieve the Level 6 Certificate in Law (endorsement: eg, Contract Law)

If the candidate achieves both units 22 and 23, they will achieve the Level 6 Certificate in Law (endorsement: Legal Skills)

A single unit qualification recognising candidates' achievements in a specific professional area of law and legal practice.
