The College of Legal Practice is pleased to welcome PwC Legal Middle East’s trainee solicitors and associates to study on its Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) programme. PwC Legal Middle East has used the opportunity of the SQE to develop its associates and support their qualification aspirations as well as providing a further route to qualification for its trainee solicitors.
PwC Legal Middle East currently has more than 70+ lawyers and legal professionals across the GCC. The firm has seen rapid growth over the last 3 years and plans to double in size in the next two years. As a modern and innovative full service law firm, PwC Legal Middle East is investing in SQE and Graduate Foundation in Law preparation courses with The College of Legal Practice for associates already working in the business, as well as trainee solicitors who join the business during the annual trainee intake. The College of Legal Practice will provide SQE preparation programmes for associates and trainees who are keen to develop their skills and obtain a professional qualification. PwC Legal Middle East was attracted to the College due to its flexible, personalised, and practical online learning design and its focus on individual supervision and support.
