The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx)
CILEx is a leading professional body for specialist lawyers, legal sector professionals and support staff.
Membership of the Chartered Institute confirms an individual`s level of professional competence, legal sector experience and qualification. By appointing qualified and experienced CILEx members into appropriate roles, organisations are able to maximise organisational efficiency whilst still meeting clients` expectations, both in terms of service standards and cost of delivery.
At CILEx we are different and we pride ourselves on adopting a tailored approach. We do not offer a one size fits all. After all, your legal practice is unique as are the individuals in your team. We work with employers on their specific business goals and enable them to tailor the support they receive from us. The same is true for our individual members, with our accredited and high quality training allowing them to choose the right elements for them and their career aspirations.
CILEx is a leading organisation in the promotion of diversity, offering support with the recruitment, development and retention of staff at all levels. We have developed a portfolio of regulated legal qualifications which are available across a range of competence levels. These levels ensure that there are opportunities for a wide range of individuals to enter and progress along their chosen career path in the sector.
As an approved regulator, CILEx is able to offer an alternative entity regulation model, with a particular focus on providing proportionate regulation to small firms wishing to deliver regulated or reserved legal services.
It makes business sense to work with CILEx

CILEx Regulation Limited (CRL)
CILEx Regulation Limited (CRL) regulates members of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx), CILEx Practitioners and entities. It is the independent regulatory body set up by CILEx in accordance with the Legal Services Act 2007.
CRL oversees the education, qualification and continuing competence of those we regulate. We set the standards we expect of our regulated community, oversee compliance with those standards and take action where an individual or entity is found not to have complied with those standards.
Authorisation by CRL means that law firms now have a choice of regulator. You have the opportunity through your own business to deliver the following reserved and regulated legal services: Conduct of litigation, Rights of audience, Probate activities, Conveyancing and Immigration advice and services.
As a regulator of firms (which we call entities), we continue to maintain the strengths of specialism in particular areas of law that our members and clients value and we authorise entities according to the specialist areas of law they provide.
Regulation is for the benefit of the consumer. CRL acts in a manner that protects and promotes the public and consumer interests. We engage with consumers and seek their feedback on our regulatory standards and the conduct and services provided by those we regulate.
We respond to proposals to reform regulatory arrangements. Our approach in our responses is to ensure that the proposals take a proportionate and risk-based approach. We also participate and contribute to policy proposals relating to education schemes and consumer engagement.
CRL aims to protect the public interest and is committed to openness and accountability.
