The University of Law announces exclusive specialist LLB agreement with CILEX
The University of Law (ULaw) has secured a new partnership with specialist professional legal qualifications provider the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX) to provide a four-year part time online LLB aligned with the CILEX Professional Qualification (CPQ).
The LLB (CILEX) is particularly aimed at students who wish to go on to qualify as CILEX Lawyers, authorised to practise unsupervised in a specialist area of law. This programme allows students to complete the first two stages of the CPQ – Foundation stage and Advanced stage – with the option of moving on to the final, Professional stage by the time they graduate. It is also suitable for students who wish to pursue a career in the legal or wider commercial sector and have the desire/need to complete their degree online.
Students will be required to become CILEX members to be accepted onto the degree and will then enjoy the benefits of membership throughout their studies. They will complete some additional CILEX modules simultaneously with their degree studies and be able to develop their professional network with CILEX, giving them a head start in their career.
The LLB (CILEX) has a practical focus, with employability integrated into the programme. As a student progresses, subject to meeting CILEX requirements, their professional status will be recognised and they will be designated as a CILEX Paralegal. At graduation they will not only be awarded the LLB but also, subject to completion of the additional CILEX modules and professional experience requirements, be recognised as a CILEX Advanced Paralegal.
The course will deliver an insight into critical legal topics and develop knowledge and understanding of key concepts in a practical environment. Students will have practical issues raised and develop relevant skills of analysis, research, problem-solving and communication skills.
By becoming CILEX members, students on the programme will have access to the myCareer portal and a catalogue of CPD and other learning material, the opportunity to attend networking and CPD events, a copy of the quarterly award-winning CILEX Journal, policy updates and technical guidance.
