About Practice Rights
Under the Legal Services Act 2007 some legal work can only be undertaken by, or under the supervision of, an 'authorised person'. These areas of work are called 'reserved' and 'regulated' legal activities.
We can authorise CILEx members and, in the case of probate and conveyancing work, non-members to provide reserved and regulated legal services.
If you do not want to be authorised you may practise as an employee working in a legal practice where there is someone authorised to provide legal services, under whose supervision you carry out the work.
Chartered Legal Executives can:
Associate Prosecutor members can:
Any person, including those who are not CILEx members, can seek authorisation from CILEx Regulation to undertake:
- Exercise rights of audience.
- Conduct litigation in criminal proceedings.
For more detailed information we have developed and published our Practice Rights FAQs.
Here are some examples of completed logbook sheets and portfolios, to help assist you with your layout and presentation.
