Developing Legal Professionals

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 working as a solicitor.

With our Developing Legal Professionals Programme, we aim to:

  • Help guide learners through the process of passing SQE1 & SQE2
  • Develop the competencies required on qualification as a solicitor
  • Improve core legal practitioner skills and business skills
  • Offer a pathway to the award of an LLM in Legal Practice

 

Our learning structure replicates work-based transactional tasks, so individuals can work independently when performing the responsibilities commonly assigned to newly qualified solicitors.

Included in the programme is our full course material provided via our online portal; individual supervisor teaching and support, practice questions and assessments.

Our trainees enjoyed the practical nature of the courses. With a focus on realistic scenarios, the range of skills and knowledge covered proved valuable in preparing them for future practice.
