“I am really satisfied with CILEx law school and would definitely recommend to others. The courses are set out very clearly so they are easy to understand and the revision resources are very good to ensure you have gained the knowledge required to sit the exam. Help is available when required and the feedback has always been very helpful. It is a good option for people who work or have other commitments as I am able to work it around my schedule.”

“The courses are excellently laid out, well ordered and easy to follow. I find the more difficult concepts in a chapter are recognized as difficult and covered over and over in the topic recordings, MCQs, study exercises and mock exams to really ensure that I understand the particular concept and not just the basic premise of the chapter.”
