Since CILEx Regulation Limited was established in 2008 there have been constant changes and challenges within the regulatory landscape. Consumers are more cost conscious, more diverse with increased expectations of legal professionals. Following the pandemic, the current economic uncertainty continues the pressure on individuals as well as businesses. Rapid developments in the technological landscape offer both challenges and opportunities. Regulatory expectations need to move swiftly and surely to keep pace.
CRL has a rolling review program of modernisation to ensure its policies and processes continue to satisfy those expectations and meet its strategic objectives.
Examples of CRL’s key achievements are:

Continuing Progress for CILEX Professionals
CILEX professionals are specialists from the outset of their careers and this competence is signalled through specialist title, for example, Chartered Legal Executive (conveyancing) or CILEX Practitioner (probate). CRL recognises and values the distinct identity of CILEX professionals. It embraces people at different stages of professional development and encourages equity and diversity. This is reflected in our ongoing work to raise further the standing and recognition of CILEx professionals including: revised education standards; the creation of alternative authorisation options for Chartered Legal Executives seeking practice rights; the development of a proposal for regulation by role rather than by activity and our work to enable Chartered Legal Executives to apply for Higher Rights of Audience.
We are proud of our achievements to date and are passionate about our goals for the future. We are committed to delivering further successes and benefits for consumers and CILEX professionals
