THE LEADING EDGE OF LEGAL LEARNING
The College of Legal Practice will be offering a cost-effective series of short legal practice programmes to truly prepare aspiring solicitors for the demands of the workplace.
Developing Legal Professionals
The series for developing legal professionals will supplement SQE (Solicitors Qualifying Examination) preparation training and integrate into qualifying work experience. Each 2-12 week programme can be taken at any point between SQE1 and qualification, and flexibly fit into the legal professional’s working week.
This series will form part of a SQE Practice Programme, offered in partnership with BARBRI that not only prepares aspiring solicitors to successfully complete the SQE1 and SQE2, but also prepares them with the skills necessary to integrate and make immediate contributions to practice.
The SQE Practice Programme will be designed for success in the SQE exams. A LPC LL.M replacement (“son of LPC”) is not devised for the future, but rather, from necessity, and is based on the existing business model of the incumbent LPC providers. Moreover, an LPC LL.M is typically predicated on an academic calendar that does not mirror the SQE timetable.
Together with BARBRI, we bring together world-leading learning technology, honed over fifty years of experience in legal education. BARBRI is the provider of choice for preparing candidates for professional bar programmes in the US which in many ways mirrors the new qualification examination being introduced in England and Wales.
Within the SQE Practice Programme, BARBRI will offer SQE1 and SQE2 Preparation Programmes, alongside The College’s series for developing legal professionals.
The College of Legal Practice’s series for developing legal professionals
This series for developing legal professionals will focus on the transactional understanding, core competencies and business skills required for professional practice. It supplements SQE preparation training and each 2-4 week programme can be taken full-time or part-time at any point between SQE1 and qualification.
Examples of subjects that will be covered within this series are practice areas - Commercial, Employment Law, IP and PI and core business skills.
The SQE Practice Programme
the complete package for the aspiring solicitor
The SQE Practice Programme will comprise:
- BARBRI SQE1 Prep Programme
- Choice of programmes from The College of Legal Practice's series for developing legal professionals
- BARBRI SQE2 Prep Programme
We are looking to confirm full details of the Programme in late 2020 following any refinements in the design of SQE by the SRA and their approval by the Legal Services Board.
