CILEX in Numbers
THE CILEX ROUTE
The CILEX route into a career in law is open to everyone with talent and the willingness to work hard and learn; it draws people from a wider social background than other parts of the legal profession. CILEX is unique in that it is open to all and doesn’t require university attendance. 56% of our members did not attend university. Of our members who have attended university over half were the first in their families to do so.
