The LawCareers.Net Handbook 2021

The move to allow CILEx fellows to apply for judicial positions has seen the appointment of the first chartered legal executive judges. Additionally, there is a growing number of chartered legal executives acquiring their own advocacy rights in higher courts. Many are partners in legal practices. Why choose the CILEx route? The quality of chartered legal executives as specialist lawyers is now widely recognised in the legal sector. Additional rights that CILEx is now able to grant to members – to conduct litigation in civil, criminal and family matters; provide probate and conveyancing services; as well as immigration advice, independently of solicitors –have opened up a number of new opportunities. Combined, these essentially give chartered legal executives all the rights they need to practise on their own without being in partnership with a solicitor or under supervision. CILEx’s flexibility allows its members to adapt to market changes and the hands-on work experience embedded in the route makes them attractive hires. If you are looking for an affordable and flexible career in law, CILEx is worth serious consideration. For all the latest information, visit www.cilex.
