Introductory Qualifications

If you want to follow a career in the legal sector, why not choose the UK's leading range of introductory legal qualifications?

Introductory Qualifications

If you have not studied law before, but wish to start a legal career, choose the Level 2 Award/Certificate/Diploma in Legal Studies qualification. The qualification provides you with the underpinning knowledge which will help you in your day-to-day work and will also allow you to progress onto the CILEx route to becoming a lawyer. The qualification is divided into units and is examined by assignments and a multiple-choice test. This qualification is available through a network of centres accredited by City & Guilds.

A-Level Qualifications

For more confident students, CILEx offers the Level 3 Certificate in Law and Legal Practice. This provides a short but rounded qualification in Law and Legal Practice. This is a modular course so you can choose from a variety of areas of the law which interest you. You need to complete 5 topics. After that, you may wish to go on to study the first stage of becoming a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer with the  Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice.

Law Graduates

If you are currently working as a Paralegal but have completed a qualifying law degree then you can choose the CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma qualification instead of your LPC or BPTC to complete your legal training.
