What is the Cambridge International Legal English Certificate (ILEC)
Cambridge ILEC is a high-level language qualification for lawyers. English is the common language of the legal profession, and of business in general, so employers need legal staff who can:
- communicate with clients and professionals in other countries
- deal effectively with material written in English
ILEC tests your English language ability at the Level B2 and C1 in the Common European Framework of Reference.
