Aspiring Solicitors


Whether you’re straight out of university or looking to progress from a paralegal role; we provide the best platform for you to qualify and begin your career as a solicitor. Our Developing Legal Professionals Programme helps prepare you to pass the SQE1 & SQE2 assessments, and develops the crucial legal transactional skills, business skills and the competencies you need to work as a legal professional.

Our Developing Legal Professionals Programme includes two modules that prepare you to pass the SQE, timed to be delivered in alignment with the SQE schedule as set by the SRA:

  • Solicitors Legal Knowledge (SLK) – preparation for the SQE1 assessment
  • Solicitors Legal Skills (SLS) – preparation for the SQE2 assessment


In addition to our SQE preparation modules we also offer transactional and business skills modules across core practice areas:

  • Acquisitions & Finance
  • Commercial Law
  • Commercial Property
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Employment Law
  • Family Law
  • Intellectual Property
  • Personal Injury
  • O Shaped Skills
  • Legal Business Skills


And, if you wish, you can take a combination of modules in a full LLM in Legal Practice that both fully prepares you for passing the SQE and for work as a qualified solicitor.

And, if you are a non-law graduate, then you can study the focused Graduate Diploma in Law before starting your preparations for SQE1.
