The College of Legal Practice is leading the way in preparing students for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination – the SQE. The SQE has now replaced the Legal Practice Course (LPC) as the preferred route to qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales. 

Our programmes are designed to help you succeed in the SQE, thanks to our experienced team, including one of the founders of the SQE – Dr Giles Proctor, and years of expertise in supporting students through every SQE assessment. The courses are carefully designed to meet the needs of both individuals and law firms as they transition to the new qualification pathway. Designed for online, our courses are flexible, affordable and accessible.  

Our not-for-profit ethos means we keep our programmes low-cost and high-value. Taught by experienced solicitors, our content is grounded in real-world legal practice, with expert personal supervision and support, highly rated by our students.  

The College of Legal Practice is backed by 25 years of experience in online legal training helping give you the best chance of passing the SQE.
