The SQE assessments: how challenging are they? With BPP University Law School

Thursday 30 March, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 30 March for our latest virtual student event run in partnership with BPP University Law School breaking down the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), the new route to professional qualification for aspiring lawyers.

The event will see SQE experts from BPP provide an in-depth insight into how the SQE is assessed, how the assessments differ to its predecessor the Legal Practice Course (LPC), and what this means for students embarking on their legal careers. The event will also include an interactive analysis of SQE sample questions, and a discussion of the key skills needed to ace the assessments.

Date: Thursday 30 March 2023
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates
