CILEx states that it will be “the much-needed professional status solution for paralegals and employers”.
Joining as an associate member will give membership of a Chartered Institute and allow use of the designatory letters ACILEx after their name.
Associate membership is available to graduates with a qualifying degree or equivalent, and those who have completed their CILEx Level 3 Professional Diploma in law and Practice.
Will paralegals be attracted by the prospect of joining a professional body and will employers see it as a positive step to have their staff supported by a Chartered Institute?
Do paralegals feel isolated currently and will they see membership as a useful step in gaining recognition and in getting help with learning and continuing competence?
