CILEX Wills and Probate CPD Packages

Welcome to our exciting new Wills and Probate CPD development packages.

What is the CILEX Wills and Probate CPD Package?

This package consists of eight “So you think you know about…” (SYTYKA) CPD modules, which will bring you up to date with developing areas of private client practice as well as reminding you of the key areas of law. Using case studies we bring the topic to life, demonstrating the link between theory and practice.

Our “hot topic” module shares a key piece of new legislation for those working with charities and our update will bring together key cases and legal developments in the past year.

Additionally, you will gain access to our content library of interactive and accessible e-books, developed to support the CILEX Professional Qualification (CPQ) covering the following topics:
