CILEx Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice
The Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and
Practice is a broad-based, practical introduction to Law and Legal
Practice. It requires that students achieve across key areas of Law
and Legal Practice (ie mandatory Law units consist of: Contract
Law, Criminal Law, Land Law and Law of Tort).
The CILEx Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law
and Practice has been developed as a unitised qualification which
permits students to adopt a flexible and tailor-made approach to
learning. Whilst all students undertake a certain amount of core
study, there is also room for students to take units which reflect
their main areas of interest.
The qualification also includes
a practical legal skills component. The Professional Skills
units (units 16 and 17) require that students demonstrate key
transferable legal skills in practical situations.
The mandatory inclusion of these units in the
Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice ensures that
the qualification both reflects the pace of change in the legal
sector and that CILEx students are well-prepared to embrace this
The qualification consists of ten units in
total which are each assessed by CILEx and accumulated by the
student. Each unit is regarded as a worthwhile achievement in its
own right and certification is available at unit level.
The units are chosen from a suite
of 19 units in accordance with the qualification rules.
