CILEx (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives) courses provide an alternative route to becoming a qualified lawyer. Our CILEx courses are taken part-time, so that you can continue to work while studying towards your qualification.

Students who have already completed a law degree or Graduate Diploma in Law are qualified to take the CILEx Level 6 qualifications, while those who have no previous legal experience or academic qualifications can start their legal education at CILEx Level 3 (equivalent to A Level standard).

Find out more about CILEx, how to qualify as a legal executive lawyer and career options available to you.

CILEx (not the University of Westminster) may allow certain exemptions for previous studies. Please view the CILEx exemptions table and contact CILEx directly to see what exemptions you may qualify for.

Please note that you must complete and pass a short written English test before you can enrol.

Year 1

The CILEx Level 6 Professional Higher Diploma in Law and Practice is the follow-on course from Level 3 Professional Diploma In Law and Practice. The Level 6 course is completed over two academic years on a part-time evening basis. We envisage that you complete three units of study in each year, which will require you to attend University two evenings per week during term-time.

Level 6 is equivalent to undergraduate level.

Year 2

The CILEx Level 6 Professional Higher Diploma in Law and Practice is completed over two academic years on a part-time evening basis. We envisage that you complete three units of study in each year, which will require you to attend University two evenings per week during term-time. Having finished year 1, in this second year you will complete Level 6 by studying your final three units.

Level 6 is equivalent to undergraduate level.

Single subject certificate

The CILEx Level 6 Single Subject Certificate recognises your achievement in a specific area of law and legal practice. The qualification is best suited to you if you do not wish to go on to become a legal executive lawyer, but still require recognition in a specific professional area of law and legal practice.

The qualification will, however, also act as an important milestone if you wish to move on to become a legal executive and Fellow of CILEx.

Graduate fast-track diploma

The CILEx Level 6 Graduate Fast-track Diploma is designed solely to accredit legal practice knowledge and understanding. It is aimed at those with significant and broad experience of the law (such as law graduates) who need a qualification specifically in relation to legal practice.

This course is suitable for you if you have successfully completed an LLB or GDL at a university in England and Wales within the last seven years.

CILEx is currently in consultation with the Legal Services Board with a view to scrapping this seven-year rule. If you would like to enrol but have obtained your LLB/GDL more than seven years ago, please contact Paul Bateman at .

Assessment

The assessment strategy reflects the academic rigor expected of a BPS accredited MSc. degree.

The assessments are designed to test your academic knowledge, oral and written skills, use of literature using primary and secondary sources, critical analysis of ideas, connections made between theory, practice, real life situations and the understanding and application of professional values including ethical issues as detailed by the BPS.

The ability to engage in research at a high level and to analyse data using advanced statistical techniques are assessed as these are important skills for forensic psychologists as well as important in many employment settings. Communication skills are assessed through videotaped role play as these are very important in any career. The ability to analyse and understand issues and apply theory to practice are assessed through a consultancy brief.

Finally the important career skill of project management is assessed mainly through the research dissertation involving self-directed problem-based enquiry, managing time, reviewing evidence, generating and analysing data and communicating results in an extended piece of writing.

Careers

Forensic psychology can be evidenced in a range of settings such as the prison and probation service, the NHS, during criminal investigations and in community settings. However, the advanced route to registration in forensic psychology is only one possibility and, having completed your degree you will find that many career opportunities are open to you both inside and outside the forensic sector and psychology related fields. Whatever your thoughts, forensic psychology is compelling as both a discipline and a profession. Studying for the MSc in Forensic Psychology will give you a good grounding in:

• Applying what you learn to simulated real life contexts (e.g., in a courtroom setting)
• The unit on professional skills in particular develops the skills expected from a forensic psychologist and other professions dealing with challenging behaviours. These skills include motivational interviewing, report writing, training skills, working in multidisciplinary environments, building relationships with other professionals.
• Assessment of risks and needs.
• Working in multidisciplinary teams.
• Communication skills such as summarizing complex information to communicate to others.
• Complex problem solving.
