CILEx Law and Legal Skills Diploma with BTEC Extended Certificate in Law

This exciting two year, full-time, law programme will provide you with a strong understanding of the law and the legal sector. The BTEC qualification will be completed during your first year of study together with the first year of the new Advanced Technical level qualification that is accredited by The Charted Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).

Assessment is through a mixture of coursework and exams. Each qualification is equivalent to one A Level and builds UCAS points. This programme of study is ideal if you wish to specialise or progress into a legal career through employment, Higher or Degree Apprenticeships, Higher Education or further vocational study.

When you achieve the qualifications, you will then also be able to apply for the foundation degree in Law at University Centre South Devon.
