About the course
The CILEx Level 6 Diploma in Law and Practice 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 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 units that APT will be teaching are:
- Law of Wills and Succession
- Civil Litigation
- Contract Law
- Probate Law
- Client Care Skills
- Legal Research Skills
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.
