What is the SQE2 Exam?

The SQE2 exam is a skills-based assessment designed to evaluate your competencies in key areas required by solicitors. This includes client interviewing, legal analysis, advocacy, case and matter analysis, legal research, legal writing, and legal drafting. Success in this exam is crucial for those aiming to qualify as solicitors in England and Wales.

The Importance of Qualifying Work Experience

At Freedom Law Clinic, we believe that practical experience is fundamental to exam success. We believe that experience is the best possible training ground for these exams.
