SQE2 Preparation

If you've passed SQE1, our SQE2 Preparation course offers extensive diagnostic testing and practise of SQE2-style tasks across all SQE legal contexts. This is also available for LPC graduates who have undertaken two years of recognised qualifying work experience and are looking to pass the SQE2 assessment as an equivalent to the LPC period of recognised training. 

The SQE2 Preparation course will build an understanding of key criteria that is featured in the SQE2 assessments. It will develop an approach and methodology to best achieve assessment success which includes:

  • Diagnostic tests
  • Assessment-focused workshops
  • Mock exam prep and feedback
  • Individual feedback, reflection, personal development goals and an assessment plan

You will cover the following topics:

  • Case and Matter Analysis
  • Client Interviewing and Attendance Note Writing
  • Advocacy
  • Legal Research
  • Legal Writing
  • Legal Drafting
  • Negotiation Skills

Independent study

  • Work through online materials, including workbooks, examples, recordings and practice questions
  • Explore the SRA assessment structure and marking criteria
  • Client Interviewing and Attendance Note Writing
  • Gain insight into the legal skills and how they should be used in practice
  • Submit written skills diagnostic assessments that will help measure the development of your skills against the SQE2 assessment criteria

The time it takes to work through the online materials will depend upon your previous knowledge and experience. However, we would recommend spending a month (full-time) on these study materials before participating in the live workshops.

Live coaching workshops

·      Participate in oral skills diagnostic tests (day 1). From this, and your written skills diagnostic assessments, you’ll receive personalised feedback which highlights the areas you need to consolidate and/or focus on developing

·      Participate in assessment-focused workshops

·      Conduct mock assessments that broadly emulate the tasks given in the centralised SQE2 assessment

After completing the course

You’ll receive your feedback report with a personal development plan. This gives guidance on how to consolidate your learning and prepare for the SQE2 assessment.
