Solicitors Qualifying Exam Overview – Law Society Guidance


As members will know the SRA is looking to introduce a new way of qualifying into the profession: the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE).

The Law Society has been representing the profession’s views as the SQE policy has been created and continues to do so as the assessments are developed.

The Law Society has now published an overview which outlines what is currently known about the SRA’s plans for the SQE and may assist aspiring solicitors, employers, providers of legal education and other organisations offering training in deciding what they can do to prepare at this stage.

While the detail of the SQE assessments is still being developed, there is much that has already been decided by the SRA and approved by the Legal Services Board or which has been the subject of SRA advice.
