About us

CILEx Law School offers distance learning courses for all CILEx Level 3 and CILEx Level 6 units, amounting to forty separate courses which are updated and republished annually. We also deliver legal apprenticeships at intermediate, advanced and higher levels. As well as our CILEx business, we are also a key provider for the criminal justice sector, developing and delivering bespoke courses for the Crown Prosecution Service, police forces and other prosecutorial agencies. We have been in partnership with De Montfort University for over fifteen years in the delivery of vocational progammes for solicitor training and also offer a practical law degree with Manchester Metropolitan University.

Facilities available

All our courses offer access to our online CILEx Law School Student Area which will be the centre of your studies. You will be given login details which will give you access through a single portal to the resources for all your courses.

Before you enrol with us we want you to understand all the options to make sure you select the best course for you, taking account of your previous educational and employment experience. We recommend that you read through the course pages and familiarise yourself with the level of study involved. Please call us on 01234 844300 for advice on course selection, or to confirm your choice. We look forward to hearing from you.

Additional support

Students learn in different ways, and the content of our courses reflects this. All our CILEx Level 3 and CILEx Level 6 courses in law and legal practice now incorporate a face-to-face element. Flexibility is the key.

Learner success

Take a look at through our news section where we regularly upload student profiles and success stories. Student testimonials are located in the course pages, so that you can see what students have said about the specific course that you wish to study. Where you find a testimonial on a course information page within the site, you can click on it to read the full version, and also to see more testimonials about that course.

      CILEx Law School courses are delivered by supported distance learning. That means that instead of attending college, our students study at home in their own time, with lots of support from us to help them progress through their studies. As well as our quality, up-to-date printed materials, our students receive on-line course resources. Support is provided by a tutor-monitored Course Forum, an academic telephone helpline and, in many cases, face-to-face teaching through our induction and revision courses.  For more information about our distance learning approach go to
