CILEx members include individuals in other grades of membership along the route to qualification as a Chartered Legal Executive. There are four membership grades below Chartered Legal Executive and these are:
- Graduate Member
Most CILEx members work in legal firms or legal departments. They need to be supervised by an authorised person working in a regulated firm if they do reserved legal work. Reserved legal work includes:
- Conveyancing, which is the legal work involved in buying and selling property (e.g. a house, building or land)
- Probate, which is the legal work involved when dealing with a person’s assets (e.g. house, savings, other possessions) and other affairs, following their death
- Litigation, which is the legal work involved in resolving a dispute between individuals and/or businesses. This sometimes involves going to court
- Advocacy, which is speaking for someone in court
Some CILEx members are self-employed and do legal work that is not reserved.
You will not find these members listed in the CILEx Practitioner Directory. If you have a question about someone who says they are regulated by us, but you cannot find their details in our Directory, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also regulate Associate Prosecutors who are authorised to carry out litigation and work for the Crown Prosecution Service.
All members of CILEx must comply with the CILEx Code of Conduct.
