A deep dive into SQE1 — with BPP University Law School

Thursday 11 April, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

The Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) regime is now in its third year. Despite multiple cohorts having sat and completed both SQE1 and SQE2 exams, the assessments remain a daunting prospect for aspiring solicitors. Recent news about firms withdrawing QWE and training contract offers for students who do not pass the SQE exams first time places even greater pressure on students to pass both components on their first attempt.

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 11 April for our latest virtual student event run in partnership with BPP University Law School, where we’ll be taking a deep dive into the regime’s first stage, SQE1.

Date: Thursday 11 April 2024
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

The discussion will be led by BPP’s head of outreach and former City law firm partner Jonny Hurst, alongside SQE Award Leaders Allison Banks (Award Leader for City Consortium Plus Programme and Essentials for Practice) and Ayesha Anandappa (LPC Firm Specific and Essentials for Practice). They will delve into the format, booking process, content and assessments for SQE1, including an interactive analysis of sample questions to help students get to grips with what to expect. We will also be joined by some of BPP’s current SQE students who have recently passed SQE1, including Mikaela Hristova, future trainee at Stephenson Harwood, and Christian Stocker, future trainee at Walker Morris. Collectively, they will provide insights into their experiences on the course, as well as offering advice to those considering this route to qualification as a solicitor.

After the panel discussion there will be virtual networking with the BPP University Law School team for follow-up questions and further careers advice.

Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit two questions for the speakers.
