It doesn’t matter what mode of study you’ve opted for to complete your CILEx exams, a study buddy can only benefit you and here are 10 reasons why!

  1. As the saying goes ‘two heads are better than one’ and believe it or not having a study can actually make the learning process easier

  2. You can learn valuable study habits from other people and pick up on ‘good practice’

  3. You can listen and discuss problematic areas with your study buddy

  4. By sharing the information and concepts that you already have with a study buddy this in turn helps reinforce your learning

DO THE READING.  Make sure you do any reading assigned for your particular course and don’t get behind.  It’s hard to catch up.  Do your reading when you are alert and not tired and pick a location where you won’t be distracted or tempted to do something else.

REVIEW BEFORE EACH CLASS.  Review any reading notes so a subject is fresh in your mind.  This will also help you to follow the class discussion and avoid the embarrassment of being unprepared.

GO TO CLASS.  If you fail to attend classes, you will miss the material that is discussed and also put yourself at a disadvantage when it comes round to tests and the final examination.

Looking after Yourself

To do yourself justice, you need to be mentally fresh and physically rested when you take the CILEx examinations.  Remember;

  1. Keep some time before the examinations for recreation.

  2. Do not fill all your time with last minute revision.  If you have followed  suggestions and prepared and kept to a revision timetable then manic last minute revision should not be necessary.  You will perform better in the examination if you have an alert mind.

  3. Avoid late nights before the day that you have an examination.  A tired person cannot perform as well as a person who is rested.  Your brain will just not be able...

People enquiring about the ‘CILEx’ route very often ask this question particularly as many educational establishments really only focus upon solicitors and barristers.  That said, not all lawyers are solicitors or barristers. Fully qualified and experienced Chartered Legal Executive lawyers are able to undertake many of the legal activities that solicitors do.

The role of a solicitor

Solicitors give advice and assistance on matters of law.  They are usually the first point of contact for people and bodies (this includes members of the public, companies and charities) seeking skilled legal advice and representation. Many solicitors work together in privat...
