Step 2: CILEX membership & qualification enrolment

Anyone seeking to enrol on the CGQ must register as a member of CILEX. This is initiated through the CILEX membership request part of the LawCab form.

The CGQ to achieve CILEX Lawyer status costs from around £6,700 (depending on exemptions and advocacy) and will be paid in stages as you progress through the qualification.

If you are not eligible for the CGQ, we will work with you to establish the correct starting point on our qualifications.
