What to do next

Step 1: Become a CILEX member

First you need to join CILEX and become a member (if you are not a member already). It’s a simple process to join and pay for your membership fee in your myCILEX portal; you’ll need to provide evidence of any previous legal qualifications which will determine the grade of membership you are eligible for, and the appropriate CPQ stage for you to start.

Step 2: Purchase CPQ

Once you have joined CILEX as a member, you’re ready to purchase CPQ. We now have new flexible pricing available to suit every budget when you purchase CPQ; you can choose to pay the full cost upfront or set up a Direct Debit to spread your payments over twelve months. You can also arrange for your employer to pay:

a)  Purchase a CPQ stage (or stages)

If you are ready to purchase one or more stages of the CPQ, over the longer term this is the cheapest option. You will receive a discount on both CPQ Foundation stage and CPQ Advanced stage. See indicative prices in the table below:

Features: enhanced e-books, assessments, professional experience portfolio, ethics & professional responsibility e-learning. Prices: Foundation total is £3,885. Advanced total is £5,765. Professional total is £3,205. Overall total: £12,855

b)  Purchase on a modular basis

If you would prefer to spread the cost, then this could be the right option for you and the cost of CPQ will be more evenly spread across the period of qualification. There will still be a requirement to complete the overall stage within three years from the point of registration. 

There will be an exam fee for each exam entry, paid at the point when students are ready to sit an exam. The fees for purchasing CPQ modules as you progress through the stage are outlined in the table below:

Pricing table per stage. Foundation Stage: 6 exams, total stage if purchased by module £4,200. Advanced stage: 5 exams, total stage if purchased by module is £6,086. Professional stage: 2 exams, total price purchased by module is £3,205. Overall total price is £13,616. Price is based on CILEX Law School. Other training providers may have different prices. Prices correct at 1 March 2024.Follow the links in your myCILEX Portal as part of the payment process.
