For students starting in April 2022 and intending to take the SQE 1 exam in July or October 2023 or in 2024.
This programme includes live seminars, recorded lectures, digital learning materials and live skills workshops to provide you with the functional legal knowledge to take the SQE 1 exam. You will normally have four hours of direct interaction with your supervisor and with the clinic team each week and throughout the course you will be working on client cases to build up Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) hours. In turn, this will allow you to develop the skills and competencies required for the SQE 2 assessment.
The small print: Our simply pay-as-you-go (PAYG) formula means that you pay a fixed amount every month and have the option to pause your participation (and payments) if your circumstances change. You can restart at any time. The maximum number of payments you will make is 12, so a total of £2,940+VAT and payments are debited automatically each month. If your career plans change completely and you decide not pursue the SQE, you can simply cancel your monthly payments in time for the next billing cycle. We do not issue refunds part way through a month or for any unused elements of the programme. As our programme features a significant casework element, by participating you agree to be bound by the principles of professional ethics set out by the Solicitors Regulation Authority even though you are not a qualified solicitor. Any breach of those principles may amount to misconduct which could lead to your place being withdrawn. Sign off on Qualifying Work Experience is contingent on you undertaking the pro bono work that is assigned to you and keeping records of the time you have spent on each case. Any fees for exams, assessments and resits are payable by you directly to the SRA.
