Applications for the CILEX Professional Qualification (CPQ) are open following regulatory approval. CILEX has committed £275,000 to fund up to 22 scholarships annually through the CILEX Foundation. Scholarships will cover training costs to become a CILEX Lawyer. Eligible applicants must demonstrate their finances and particular circumstances make it challenging to access a legal education. Support targets those under-represented in the profession and/or from a disadvantaged background, such as young carers, those with an Equality Act 2010 protected characteristic, who have received free school meals or who have been in care.
