SQE2 Preparation for Legal Professionals
If you are solicitor wanting to qualify in England and Wales using the SQE route to qualification and you are currently working full-time in the legal sector, then this online course is designed to prepare you for those assessments.
It is designed to support the legal knowledge and skills you will have already developed, while preparing you for the SRA’s centralised SQE2 assessments. You’ll have flexibility to study online at your own pace (10 hours per week), without any fixed schedule. The course is therefore asynchronous in design, but each unit has timetabled live subject support sessions to allow you to ask a tutor questions or clarify part of the course.
Our courses are delivered by expert lecturers, including subject matter specialists, former and current practitioners, and research and teaching focused academics.
