Working with CILEx

Working with CILEx

At CILEx we are different and we pride ourselves on adopting a tailored approach. We do not offer a one size fits all. After all, your legal practice is unique as are the individuals in your team.

We work with employers on their specific business goals and enable them to tailor the support they receive from us. The same is true for our individual members, with our accredited and high quality training allowing them to choose the right elements for them and their career aspirations. This results in qualified legal professionals including paralegals, lawyers and legal practitioners who have not had to undergo any unnecessary study and waste time and money.

It makes business sense to work with CILEx and there are two ways that you, as an employer, can work with us:
