  • Post Qualification Seats – in your first twelve months following qualification as a Fellow of CILEx, we will offer four, month long seats in four different areas of practice.

NB: A Fellow of CILEX who has obtained the LL.B or GDL and LPC is exempt from the requirement of a training contract. If they wish to qualify as a solicitor, they must complete the core elements of the Professional Skills Course (8 days rather than the 12 that would be usually required under the traditional route).
