CILEx Graduate Fast-Track Diploma – Law Training Centre Kent

CILEx Graduate Fast Track Diploma

Who is it for?

  • Do you have a Law or Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL)?
  • Do you want to qualify as a lawyer?
  • Do you not wish to undertake a costly Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC)?

  • The CILEx Graduate Fast Track Diploma has been designed with you in mind.
    With the CILEx route, you don’t have to secure a training contract or pupillage. Instead of qualifying as a solicitor or barrister, graduates qualify and practise as Chartered Legal Executive lawyers.

    Increasingly on a level playing field with solicitors, Chartered Legal Executive lawyers can now become judges, coroners, advocates and partners in law firms.

    Upon successful completion

    On successfully completing the Graduate Fast-track Diploma (Level 6 Diploma in Legal Practice), you can upgrade from CILEx Associate Member to CILEx Graduate Member

    Courses can be studied full time, part time or via distance learning, leaving you free to work in legal practice and gain the necessary qualifying employment to becoming a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer and a CILEx Fellow.

    The Graduate Fast Track Diploma (Level 6 Diploma in Legal Practice) is open to those who have achieved their law degree or GDL.
