CILEx Law School Student Survey


Publications in law and legal practice

CILEx Law School publishes annually-updated course manuals in over 30 areas of law and legal practice. These are accessible, reader-friendly texts which range from general introductory-level law and practice to advanced specialist texts.

CILEx Law School's manuals form part of the course materials for our distance learning courses, but are also available separately. Several UK universities use our publications as core teaching materials on their LLB or Graduate Diploma in Law courses, and we also offer a bespoke publishing service to educational institutions. Fee earners in legal practice also find our advanced texts to be an excellent, and highly current, reference resource. These are published primarily as CILEx course manuals but are also suitable for other academic study or practitioner reference.

  • clear, clean layout;
