SQE2 Preparation Course




This course is designed for those who’ve completed SQE1 training, such as our SQE1 Preparation Course.

You will develop the legal skills of interviewing, advocacy, case and matter analysis, legal research, legal writing and drafting in order to sit the SQE2 assessments and be ready for Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) and practice.

Why choose this course?

·       Confidence for the assessments, with plenty of practice in the exact type of oral and written skills assessments you’ll face. Our intelligent revision app, ULawSQE, will help you consolidate and revise the practice contexts within which the SQE2 assessments are based, so you’ll feel fully prepared and know exactly what to expect.

·       Benefit from our extensive experience in helping students develop the skills that will be assessed in SQE2.
