Four Lay Conduct Panel members (two for our Professional Conduct Panel and two for our Disciplinary Tribunal)

CILEx Regulation is the independent regulator for Chartered Legal Executives under the Legal Services Act 2007. We are committed to proportionate, risk-based regulation in a rapidly changing legal services environment and to widening access to the legal profession.

We are seeking four lay panelists to serve on either our Professional Conduct Panel or Disciplinary Tribunal from January 2021. Our independent panels consider misconduct matters and suitability for membership.

The successful candidates will help us maintain professional standards by bringing real world experience to the consideration of conduct matters in the public and consumer interest.

We are looking for professional experience relevant to the role. You must have strong analytical skills, including the ability to assimilate complex information and make evidence-based decisions. You should also have good interpersonal and communication skills and be comfortable working digitally. You must be committed to the ‘Nolan’ principles of public life.

Some panels are held remotely, some at our offices in Kempston, Bedfordshire and some at other locations.

As a panelist you will receive:

  • £350 for each meeting you attend in person (usually up to five per year)
  • a fee for each meeting you attend by phone
  • a day rate for training (usually two per year)
  • reasonable expenses for travel, subsistence and accommodation

Panelists serve a term of three years, with a further three-year term allowed.
