CILEx Graduate Fast Track Diploma

The Graduate Fast-track Diploma (Level 6 Diploma in Legal Practice) is open to those who have achieved their law degree or GDL.

The CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma (Level 6 Diploma in Legal Practice) is for law and Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) graduates who want to qualify as lawyers without undertaking the more traditional and costlier Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) routes. There is also no requirement to secure a training contract or pupillage when taking the CILEx route to qualification. Instead of qualifying as a solicitor or barrister, graduates qualify and practise as Chartered Legal Executive lawyers.

Increasingly on a level playing field with solicitors, Chartered Legal Executive lawyers can now become judges, coroners, advocates and partners in law firms.

On successfully completing the Graduate Fast-track Diploma (Level 6 Diploma in Legal Practice) you can upgrade from CILEx Associate Member to CILEx Graduate Member.

You should be able to complete the qualification within one academic year. The qualification is comprised of two CILEx Level 6 Practice subjects (one of which must relate to a subject you studied within your law degree or GDL), and the CILEx Level 6 Client Care Skills unit.

South Devon College was the perfect option for me. It is one of the very few colleges that offer the CILEX route, enabling me to become a qualified Legal Executive. I first spoke with the tutors at an open evening – I soon realised everything I needed to know was available here and it would be the right place for my studies.Mike Davies
