CILEx Level 6 Diploma

The CILEX Level 6 Higher Professional Diploma in Law and Practice

The CILEx Level 6 Diploma is the second and final academic stage towards becoming a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer. You can study at your own pace, but the qualification should take you around two years to complete.

Building on the CILEx Level 3 Extended Diploma in Law and Practice, students are required to demonstrate a broad and detailed understanding of the law in three specific areas. For one of these areas, the candidate must also demonstrate a sound practical understanding of the legal practice that arises from the law.

The candidate must also demonstrate the required level of underpinning professional legal skills by undertaking two mandatory Professional Skills units. The CILEx Level 6 Diploma is set and assessed at level 6, honours degree level. For those already holding a qualifying law degree, CILEx also offers a new Graduate Fast-Track diploma which can be used instead of the LPC or BPTC to complete your legal studies.

For students wishing to dual qualify as solicitors, CILEx level 6 qualifications have exemptions with the SRA (Solicitors’ Regulation Authority) for the Foundations of Legal Knowledge subjects, and candidates achieving the Level 6 Diploma in Law and Practice can use this qualification towards becoming a solicitor.
