Law Training Centre (SQE)
The inside line
A relatively new name on the legal scene, Law Training Centre (LTC) is perhaps best known for its Chartered Legal Executive and Licensed Conveyancer courses, as well as its work in helping prepare candidates to sit professional qualifications in conveyancing and probate.
Fees & the “express” option
The training provider has now entered into the SQE prep course market with an online offering. Fees for the SQE1 Full Prep course are priced at £1,950, and SQE2 at £2,500. For those who have already completed an SQE1 course with LTC, an alumni concession of £500 is available towards their SQE2 course.
For those looking to complete their SQE1 and 2 in a shorter timeframe, LTC offers SQE Express Prep courses, which can be completed in nine months rather than 15, at £990 for SQE1 and £495 for SQE2. Further, SQE Just Mock courses are available for those merely looking to gain mock experience ahead of their assessments.
What the course offers
LTC was co-founded by husband and wife duo Eve and Dino Dullabh in 2015. Eve previously worked as a law lecturer and planning lawyer, while Dino has held a number of directorships both inside and outside the education industry.
As part of the standard SQE packages, students will receive unlimited attendance to workshops, both live and recorded, which run twice a month, as well as access to a virtual learning platform where they can get to grips with both foundation legal knowledge and client care skills.
Candidates will also have access to a personal academic coach, a personal study plan, pre-recorded video lectures and access to tutors (many of whom are lawyers) covering specific practice areas. LTC will also provide solicitor hopefuls with support materials including flashcards, practice questions and revision guides. It has also teamed up with Oxford University Press to give students access to legal textbooks. In addition, students will have access to the Thomson Reuters Practical Law online resource.
SQE prep courses through LTC include 15 months access as standard, giving students up to two exam sittings while also taking into account the registration window ahead of the exam. Moreover, it provides a ‘Passplus Guarantee’ which gives students access to training materials and online support for one additional resit, should they require it.
