Getting your lawyers qualified


Our courses can be tailored to meet the needs of your organisation. We provide the best platform to help your trainees qualify and progress as legal professionals. Our Developing Legal Professionals Programme will both help prepare them to pass the SQE and develop the legal transactional skills and competencies they need to succeed in the industry.

Our Developing Legal Professionals Programme includes two modules that prepare students to pass the SQE, timed to be delivered in alignment with the SQE schedule as set by the SRA:

  • Solicitors Legal Knowledge (SLK) – preparation for the SQE1 examination
  • Solicitors Legal Skills (SLS) – preparation for the SQE2 examination


In addition to SQE preparation modules, we also offer transactional skills modules across core practice areas:

  • Acquisitions & Finance
  • Commercial Law
  • Commercial Property
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Employment Law
  • Family Law
  • Intellectual Property
  • Personal Injury
  • Legal Business Skills


Students can take a combination of modules in a full LLM in Legal Practice that both fully prepares them to pass the SQE and for work as a qualified solicitor. We can work with you to design a tailored programme that works for your trainees and your organisation.


SQE1 preparation

  • Full-time and part-time courses running twice a year


SQE2 preparation

  • First course begins in January 2022


LLM in Legal Practice (inc. SQE Prep)

The College of Legal Practice’s approach to learning is grounded in real-world legal practice, which makes it a perfect fit with our own training philosophy. It is important to us that its tutors are practising solicitors as they understand our needs as a firm, as well as how best to guide and support our trainees in their learning. We work closely with The College of Legal Practice to identify the knowledge and the skills required for our trainees to succeed in the legal profession. As these requirements change and evolve, the courses will change too, meaning the time our trainees spend learning with The College of Legal Practice remains practical, valuable and relevant.
