You have the best chance of passing the SQE with us - why?
Here are just some of the reasons why you have the best chance of passing the SQE with The College of Legal Practice:
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COURSE FOR YOU
The Solicitors Legal Knowledge module can be taken across 13, 20 or 40 weeks. The course content and learning approach is the same, but you can choose the number of hours that you wish to learn each week depending on your experience and work and life circumstances. The majority of learning for all courses, can be completed at a time that suits you across the week.
Full-time, 13 weeks
The 13-week course is considered full-time, as you will be learning on average 25-30 hours a week. We would recommend this course if you are able to be a full-time student or work part-time, and have recently studied your LLB or conversion course. This course is very intensive and if you are working full-time, you may find you don’t have sufficient time to fully prepare for the SQE Assessments.
Part-time, 20 weeks
The 20-week course is our recommended course for those who are working alongside their studies. You will study part-time for 15-20 hours a week, progressing quickly enough to learn, embed and retain the legal knowledge gained each week. If you are working full-time, we would recommend study leave for 1 day a week, particularly if you have evening and weekend commitments.
Part-time, 40 weeks
This 40-week course is for those who have a high level of work and personal commitments, with an average of 8 hours of learning per week. We would also recommend this course if it has been a little while since you last studied law or you want to give yourself additional study time throughout the course.
