Chartered Institute of Legal Executives
The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives is the professional association which represents more than 20,000 trainee and practising Chartered Legal Executives. For more than 50 years, we have been offering unparalleled access to a flexible career in law. We work closely with Government and the Ministry of Justice and are recognised in England and Wales as one of the three core approved regulators of the legal profession alongside barristers and solicitors.
Founded in 1892, the Institute of Legal Executives became a company limited by guarantee in 1963 with the support and co-operation of the Law Society. On 30 January 2012, we became incorporated by Royal Charter and are now known as the ‘Chartered Institute of Legal Executives’. In 2013, we celebrated 50 years of legal careers.
