“CILEx Law School staff are efficient, friendly and sympathetic.”

CILEx Law School Student Survey


Training for law firms and ABSs

We offer courses for staff at all levels, to help you to make your organisation more effective and more profitable. Here are a number of ways that you can use our courses to achieve your business goals, each of which has been used successfully by many client organisations.

Train unqualified staff to become fee earners

Our Level 3 courses in law and legal practice will deliver introductory training to enable staff to progress standard files under supervision. Find out more about converting paralegals and legal secretaries into fee earners. As well as providing off-the-shelf training, we are working with national law firms on the development and delivery of in-house academies and apprenticeship programmes.

Divert qualified staff to emerging areas of legal practice

Use our Level 6 courses in law and legal practice to re-deploy your qualified lawyers to emerging practice areas. These courses are ideal for re-training and will deliver in-depth knowledge at honours-degree level (law courses) or LPC-level (practice courses). Find out more about the training available to enable your lawyers to switch to a new department.

Develop your legal secretaries’ administrative skills

Let your competent legal secretaries take on more of the office and event management by studying for one of our qualifications for legal secretaries. Free up your fee-earners' time by making your secretarial staff more effective. 

Home-grow your own lawyers through the Chartered Legal Executive route.

If you currently sponsor staff to become solicitors you will be surprised at how cost-effective it is to train them to become Chartered Legal Executives instead. Chartered Legal Executives are trained to the same level as solicitors in their specialist subjects and can now become partners in law firms. Home-growing your competent legal secretaries or law graduate paralegals to become qualified lawyers is a really cost-effective investment.
