Career Pathways and Outcomes
Our pathways to success allow individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds to pursue a career in law and gain recognised qualifications thanks to our Royal Charter status.
From school leavers just starting out; current employees looking to attain a nationally recognised qualification and earn while they learn; apprentices; law graduates looking for the next step right through to partners wishing to move into a judicial role. With CILEx everyone can achieve their desired level of professionalism and maintain their professionalism throughout their career through membership of CILEx.

Don’t forget to speak to our experienced team of qualified advisors who can advise you of the best pathways for your employees.
Our flexible pathways mean that we consider 4 main things:
- 1. The starting point of the learner
- 2. Any existing qualifications or experience the learner has
- 3. The learner's ambitions
- 4. The business' ambitions
By reviewing all four of these factors, we are able to design the right pathway to success that meets the needs of both the business and the learner. If you have a team or individual employees ready for development, contact our experienced team of qualified advisors who can look at the best options for your business needs and advise on the right membership grade to support them through their studies and career.
CILEx member grades are designed to support your employees. There is a student grade for absolute beginners or an affiliate grade for those with some experience or legal qualifications. Professional memberships with designatory letters recognise academic and work related progression for Associates, Graduates and Fellows to award individuals by recognising their status in the legal profession from paralegal to Chartered legal executive. Supporting employee membership of a CILEx professional body which takes care of career support, competence based CPD, regulation for practice rights and authorisation, welfare and personal rewards, benefits your employees, the productivity of your business and impresses your clients .
