The CPQ is a new, competence-based qualification framework, that reflects the changing requirements of a rapidly evolving legal and business landscape. Developed in consultation with employers and other stakeholders, CPQ combines a focus on technical expertise and practical skills with developing the core behaviours required to drive forward thinking, commercially minded, adaptable lawyers who really understand the clients they serve.

  • How to evaluate and manage risk
  • How to communicate effectively, with different stakeholders and in different settings
  • Approaches to managing conflict, building relationships and working across boundaries
  • The importance of exploring developments in the sector, responding to change and seeking continuous improvement

The CPQ is a single qualification made up of three elements:

  • Assessment of legal knowledge and skills
  • Ethics and Professional Responsibility eLearning modules
  • Professional Experience

About the course

Aimed at preparing an employee to be a competent Senior Paralegal/Fee Earner, the Advanced Stage will allow those taking this stage to demonstrate technical knowledge and the practical application of law relating to key practice areas. The stage enhances skills, including business awareness and how to behave in accordance with professional and regulatory standards.

On completion of the Advanced Stage of the CPQ, a trainee will be awarded CILEx stage 2 membership.

The Advanced Stage has four mandatory modules which must be completed. Those taking the stage will also be required to select at least one optional module. Careful consideration should be given to ensure that the module which would pair with the intended Professional Stage module choice and reflecting the intended area of legal practice, is selected.
