Legal Navigator Learner Experience: SQE – Start Your Legal Career Now

Welcome to the Law Training Centre Legal Navigator Podcast – SQE: Start Your Legal Career Now – with your host Rebecca Ogunmayun.

In this week’s episode, we’re delving into the new SQE route to qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales, and what this means for aspiring solicitors.

The Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is a single, national licensing examination that allows aspiring solicitors to qualify at a lower cost and with more flexible study methods and work experience opportunities. To qualify as a solicitor via the SQE route, learners need to satisfy four main elements:

  • Have a degree in any subject (or equivalent Level 6 qualification or work experience)
  • Pass both stages of the SQE assessment or be exempt
  • Have two years’ qualifying work experience
  • Pass SRA character and suitability requirements

Find out more about the SQE and our preparation courses here.

To discuss the SQE, Rebecca spoke to our wonderful guest speakers: Kevin Rogers (Partner at Wilson Browne Solicitors), Fatimah Zahrah (Executive Legal Assistant and SQE1 learner), Sunny Miah (Trainee Solicitor and SQE2 learner) and Katy Turquoise (Non-Legal Member of Employment and Social Security Tribunal and SQE1 learner).
