Working with Us
CILEx Law School (CLS) is the wholly owned Law School of The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives specialising in flexible legal training.
Applying to be a Freelance Law, Legal Practice or Professional Skills Tutor
CILEx Law School (CLS) often has opportunities for freelance tutors for our CILEx subjects as well as out customised training courses. The role involves marking and providing feedback on students’ assignments electronically. Senior tutors can also become involved in writing and updating the materials we use to deliver courses to our students. Those with lecturing experience may be interested in our series of face to face revision days and online webinar tutoring.
As a tutor, it is essential that you have the following:
• 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
• Excellent written communication skills
• Computer literacy
A teaching qualification in further or higher education is desirable, although applicants without such a qualification but with teaching and/or training experience will still be considered. We would particularly welcome applications from current legal practitioners with some teaching or training experience.
We agree a workload to suit the circumstances of individual tutors so that this role can be performed around other work and/or domestic commitments.
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.
These programmes are similar to the Intermediate Apprenticeship in Legal Administration but do not require workplace visits.
Level 3 - Wills & Succession and Probate Practice - Revision face to face and webinar tutor
Level 6 - Wills & Succession and Probate Practice - Face to face revision and webinar tutors
In the first instance, please send your CV to Ruby Denton.

Applying to be a Freelance Author
CILEx Law School frequently offers opportunities for freelance authors to write new texts or update and review existing texts, as our course manuals and study materials are revised annually.
CILEx Law School's manuals and revision materials cover a wide range of academic and legal practice subjects, such as Criminal Law, Criminal Litigation, Family Law, Family Practice, Employment Law and Employment Practice.
Authors must have experience of academic writing. Teaching experience is also an advantage, and authors of practice manuals should have experience of legal practice.
Our authors are provided with detailed author's guidelines, support and guidance from CILEx Law School's editorial team. Samples of the layout of our manuals are available in the publications section of this website. We also offer our authors access to the Lexis Nexis legal resource database and a copy of the Legal Executive Journal which is published monthly. There are networking opportunities with fellow tutors and authors at occasional CILEx Law School workshops.
If you are interested, please complete the application form below and send it by e-mail to Edward Stone, together with a covering letter indicating which area(s) of law and/or legal practice you would be able to cover.
