The CILEx Graduation & Admission ceremony offers a wonderful opportunity for your hard work and achievement to be recognised and celebrated with your friends, loved ones, fellow CILEx members, CILEx Board Members and staff. The ceremony also gives CILEx the opportunity to congratulate each and every one of you for your hard work and commitment to the Chartered Institute and, to thank your guests for the support that they have given to you during your journey. We hope to share the day with as many of our eligible members as possible. 

The Graduation Ceremony 2019 will be open to current Graduate members, who have been confirmed in this grade after the January & June 2019 exam session, and the Admission Ceremony to current Fellows, Probate & Conveyancing Practitioners and Advocates of CILEx.
