One year on from its introduction, SRA policy managers join BPP’s Head of Outreach to reflect on the new qualification regime

Here is the full video from our latest instalment in a series of SQE events with BPP University Law School.

The recent virtual event featured:

Carol Cook, policy manager at the Solicitors Regulation Authority
Richard Williams, policy manager at the Solicitors Regulation Authority
Jonny Hurst, former City law firm partner and Head of Outreach at BPP

The speakers explored what we have learned over the past 12 months in relation to the SQE1 and SQE2 exams, and advised students preparing to embark on this new route to qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales.

The trio also discussed the introduction of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) and the potential it offers students to take their career journey into their own hands, as well as considering the range of course providers in the space and the different courses on offer.

Legal Cheek is 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.
