Aimed at preparing an employee to be a competent CILEX Lawyer, the CILEX Professional Qualification (CPQ) Professional stage enables trainees to demonstrate specialist knowledge and the application of the law in specific areas of practice, and the ability to work independently and to high professional and ethical standards.
The CPQ Professional stage has one just one mandatory module – Professional Skills. Trainees then select one further module from an extensive range of options.
- Dispute Resolution
- Criminal Litigation
- Residential Conveyancing
- Commercial Conveyancing
- Employment Law
- Business and Commercial Law
- Family Litigation
- Wills, Probate and Private Client
- Immigration Law
The Professional stage module choice will be determined by the area that trainees will seek to acquire their practice rights, and must be underpinned by a relevant Advanced stage module corresponding to the pathway chosen.
Trainees with an LPC, BPTC or equivalent will enter CPQ at Professional stage. Trainees entering directly at this stage will also be required to complete both Ethics and Professional Responsibility e-learning modules.
Trainees who complete this level of qualification will become CILEX Lawyers.
