SQE1 Preparation

Our SQE1 Preparation course focuses on the key legal practice areas that are examined in both stages of the SQE assessments. It includes materials and revision opportunities for the core areas of law from your previous studies. These include:

  • Business Law and Practice
  • Dispute Resolution (revising Contract and Tort)
  • Criminal Practice (revising Criminal Law)
  • Property Law and Practice (revising Land Law)
  • Wills and the Administration of Estates (revising Trusts)

Legal Services, Professional Conduct, Taxation, and Solicitors’ Accounts will also be covered together with helpful revision materials for the Legal System of England and Wales.

To give you the best chance of assessment success, our innovative approach combines the SQE legal knowledge required with an introduction to the legal skills you will need as a real solicitor. By applying your legal knowledge in our Virtual Practice Environment and live workshops, led by expert tutors with professional experience, you’ll get a real insight into the scenarios used in the SQE assessments and the tasks you will encounter as a legal professional.

This method of learning helps you develop a deep understanding of SQE topics for quicker recall in the intensive SQE1 MCQ assessments. In addition, it will also give you a head-start on your SQE2 preparation.
