Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS) notice regarding the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE)

How the SQE (Solicitors Qualifying Examination) may affect your qualifying journey
Did you know the SQE (Solicitors Qualifying Examination) may affect your route to qualifying as a Solicitor from 2021?

The SQE will be a rigorous assessment for all aspiring solicitors. It will replace all current routes to becoming a qualified Solicitor in England and Wales, including the QLTS scheme.

The SRA will allow candidates who have passed the multiple-choice test (MCT) time to finish qualifying via the QLTS scheme. However, the SRA has made it clear that this may not be possible for some candidates. This means that a foreign qualified lawyer will need to consider the risk of not completing the QLTS scheme and having to switch streams to the SQE to become a Solicitor in England and Wales after 2021.
The final date for the QLTS MCT sitting has been confirmed by Kaplan to be 7th July 2021. Visit the Kaplan QLTS website for more information.
If you have passed the MCT only before 1st September 2021 – you can finish qualifying through the QLTS scheme and take the QLTS Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) up to the final date it will run. This information will be available through the Kaplan QLTS website. You can also switch to the SQE 2 as an alternative to the OSCE.
If you have been granted exemptions from the MCT before 1st September 2021 – You will have until July 2021 to sit and pass the QLTS OSCE to become a qualified solicitor in England and Wales. You can email with any questions.
If you have passed both the MCT and OSCE – you will need to meet the additional SRA requirements and apply for admission by 31st of August 2022.
What happens after 2021?
Foreign Qualified Lawyers will go through the SQE to become a Solicitor in England and Wales.
The SQE comprises of;
  • Having a degree or equivalent
  • Passing the SQE1 and SQE2
  • Completing two years of qualifying work experience (QLE)
  • Passing the SRA’s character and suitability tests
  • For a foreign qualified lawyer, however, the SRA offers guidance on their principles for admission which varies from the average SQE candidate. This can be found here.

    Contact us if you have any further queries at info@ltckent.co.uk or call us on 0330 088 8495.
    You can also email sqe@sra.org.uk for more information and clarification.

    This course meets the needs of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), which decides who can practice law in England and Wales. It has been designed by experts.
    Our learning objective: to give you the knowledge, preparation and confidence to pass your assessments and to put you decisively on the path to practicing law in England and Wales.

    What will I learn?

    Specifically, you will learn what the SRA calls Day One Outcomes. These are what it considers fully qualified solicitors who practice in England and Wales need to know on their first day of work. These are:

  • Core knowledge and understanding of the law applied in England and Wales.
  • Intellectual, analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Transactional and dispute resolution skills.
  • Legal, professional and client relationship knowledge and skills.
  • Personal development and work management skills.
  • Professional values, behaviours, attitudes and ethics.
  • Your tailored course options

    Our QLTS is taught in Standard and Plus packages. Plus gives expertise and personal support to students who want exam/assessment practice and who value unlimited tutor support. Standard is for those who are confident in their exam techniques but who need specialist knowledge to pass the QLTS, which is comprised of two parts: MCT and OSCE.
    Our approach at Law Training Centre is to use a blend of learning. This means:

  • Expert tutors. We use lawyers to train lawyers.
  • Best possible online learning systems and resources.
  • Individual student plans.

  • Please note you may also be exempt from having to study certain topics within the OSCE. This will be decided by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). For more on how this work please see QLTS course requirements.
