How to pass the SQE — with The College of Legal Practice

Thursday 25 May, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

When it comes to preparing for and passing the new Solicitors Qualifying Exams (SQE), there is still a great deal of uncertainty amongst aspiring legal professionals, many of whom are unsure of what to expect and how best to prepare.

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 25 May for a virtual student event, run in partnership with The College of Legal Practice. We’ll be joined by SQE experts from the College, including Jane Waddell and Kathryn Newton, academics with insights of designing and delivering SQE preparation, as well as students of the College who have recently passed the exams, to discuss their expertise and first-hand experience.

Date: Thursday 25 May 2023
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates, Non-Law Professionals

How long do you have to answer each question? What is the legal focus of each question and how do you work this out? How should you revise to give yourself the best chance of passing? How does SQE1 differ to SQE2? With the College having seen ever growing numbers of students sitting the SQE, the speakers will use their knowledge of how the qualification is evolving to give you the inside line on how to best prepare for the SQE, including choosing the right course and provider for your SQE preparation.
