Level 3 & 6 CILEX Courses
The Law Academy is accredited by The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX) to deliver Level 3 and Level 6 CILEX Law Courses. All our weekly classes are online and very popular.

Level 3 CILEX Courses

Level 3 units are set at A Level study standard. For the Certificate in Law and Practice, you need to achieve 5 units of study. These must include the Introduction to Law and Practice unit, Client Care skills, Legal Research skills and a linked Law and Practice unit. For example, you may study Law of Tort (Law unit) with Civil Litigation (Practice unit) to achieve this.

To gain your Professional Diploma in Law and Practice you need to achieve 10 units in total listed below. This includes the subjects achieved in year one. 

Our teaching methods are a blend of online weekly lessons with your group plus a weekly pre-recorded webinar to access before the lesson.  Your live sessions will be one evening a week per subject. 

Some people opt for our e-learning option which involves a lot more self study. If you are interested in this method, read more here: E-learning

All exams are in January and June and are taken online, remotely from your home or office. 

We are no longer enrolling new students onto Level 3 and new enquiries should refer to the CPQ page instead. 

Level 6 CILEX Courses

Level 6 Courses are the continuation from Level 3 when working towards your full Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer qualifications. These are set at Honours Degree Level. 

There is a wide range of Law subjects to choose to specialise in. You need to choose 3 Law subjects as part of your overall Level 6 studies. The Law Academy a selection of these subjects to choose from. 

Together with your 3 chosen Law subjects you will need to choose a linked practice subject to one of your Law subjects for instance – Tort or Contract links with Civil Litigation; Family Law links with Practice of Family Law. We can give you more advice on your choice of subjects on your information appointment or while you are studying your Level 3 subjects with us. 

We offer our level 6 subjects as intensive one term units. This is very popular with students as it will enable you to study 2 subjects per academic year back to back giving you the benefit of concentrating on one subject at a time. 

All Level 6 exams are online and 3 hours in duration with an additional 15 minutes reading time. All exams are taken remotely online from your home or office.

Level 6 students also undertake the Professional Skills units of Legal Research and Client Care Skills. These are course based units with no final exam. Students are guided through the various tasks set by CILEx for completion of these units. We run tuition sessions for these units at weekends at various points of the year. 

The 4 exam based units together with the 2 professional skills coursework units leads to the overall qualification of CILEx Level 6 Diploma in Law and Practice. 

Some people opt for our e-learning option which involves a lot more self study. If you are interested in this method, read more here: E-learning
