Practice Rights Holders Case Studies

Scott MorrisThe CILEx route was sold to me on the basis that I could qualify into subject areas of interest, in a cost-efficient manner and at a pace to suit. It also gave me to the opportunity to earn and gain practical experience. I would attribute my successful studies to this format.

In 2015 I was the first CILEx member to gain the new practice rights; I obtained practice rights in conveyancing, qualifying as a CILEx Conveyancing Practitioner. This has provided valuable weight to my 11 years’ experience in conveyancing. It gives me the same practice rights in conveyancing as solicitors and licensed conveyancers and it enables colleagues and clients to be assured that I am competent in my work.

Qualifying as a CILEx Conveyancing Practitioner put me on the path to becoming a member of the LLP. I am now in a management role where I employ staff, and have found candidates with a CILEx background to be a more attractive prospect. I believe that those with vocational training are becoming increasingly important and attractive due to the practical experience that they’ve obtained alongside academic study.
