The speakers explored six routes to qualification available under the new regime. They answered key questions including: the next steps for LPC graduates without training contracts, expectations for aspiring solicitors once they have completed SQE1, SQE2 and qualifying work experience (QWE), and the graduate and solicitor apprenticeships that are available under the SQE. Also explained was who is most suited to certain routes and the advantages and disadvantages of these.

Legal Cheek will be running ‘The SQE series’ with BPP University Law School over the next few months. The video of each session will be made available one month after each virtual event.
