SQE1 & SQE2 Preparation

This SQE prep course will help you get ready for both stages of the SQE exams. It will develop the functional legal knowledge that is assessed in both SQE1 and SQE2, and the legal skills that are tested in the final stage assessments. Start dates for this SQE prep course are aligned with the SRA’s centralised assessment dates to optimise your chances of exam success.

  • Develop the legal knowledge that will be assessed in SQE1 and SQE2
  • Build the core legal skills that will be assessed in SQE2
  • Practice SQE1 and SQE2-style questions before each assessment

Part 1: SQE1 Preparation

Our SQE1 Preparation is designed to ensure you are fully prepared for the SQE1 assessment, covering the ‘functioning legal knowledge’ that is assessed in the first part of the SQE qualification, as well as helping you to understand how those same areas will be assessed in SQE2.

Using a Virtual Practice Environment, you’ll actively apply this knowledge to realistic scenarios and reflect on this in collaborative workshops, led by expert tutors, and periods of independent study. In this way, you’ll develop a deep knowledge and understanding that aligns your functioning legal knowledge with your legal skills, understanding how they are intertwined in a practice environment, in readiness for the second stage of the SQE assessments.

This course also covers the full range of skills that will be assessed in SQE2, such as Legal Research and Legal Writing throughout.

Part 2: SQE2 Coaching

Once you have successfully completed the SQE1 assessments, you can then move onto our SQE2 Coaching course to prepare you for the final stage in your academic SQE journey.

It features a period of independent online study, which typically takes around one month, followed by an intensive 10-day coaching session to get you ready for assessment success.
