In April 2017, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) agreed to introduce the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) as a new approach to qualification.
We have been working with BPP on a bespoke course and all our future trainees will complete LLM SQE 1 and 2 where they have not already completed the LPC/SQE. This bespoke course will allow our future trainees the opportunity to study electives (not part of SQE 1 or 2) and understand more commercially about law firms as businesses and the impact of emerging technologies.
If you have not completed a law degree or SQE 1 at the point of receiving a place on our trainee solicitor programme, you will be required to complete the PGDL.
For the SQE and PGDL courses there is flexibility in how and where our future trainees can learn – this can be at one of BPP’s various campuses across the UK, or fully online, and can be studied part-time or full-time. Networking and social events will also take place during studies to ensure our future trainees start building their knowledge and networks at the firm, as well as across their cohort, before commencing on their training programme.
