• A law qualification to degree level, which includes Graduate Membership of CILEx
• Experience of marking
• Up to date legal knowledge of the law subjects that you mark

You will be provided with all relevant course materials, and tutor mark schemes. You will also receive a copy of the CILEx Journal each month. Our Academic Team will also provide you with ongoing support.
