The SRA has radically overhauled the way in which you can become a solicitor in England and Wales. In November 2021 the first-ever batch of candidates sat one element, the first of two exams which make up the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE).
In this webinar we will discuss how you can currently qualify to become a solicitor in England and Wales and how the new SQE route will replace the more traditional LPC and training contract route.
We will explore the reasons for the changes, according to the SRA, and consider the aims and objectives of this new pathway.
This webinar will be useful for those interested in qualifying as a solicitor, and for HR managers and practice managers wanting to understand more about the SQE.
