We are pleased to be able to offer the new Solicitor Qualifying Exam (SQE) route to qualification through a Graduate Solicitor Apprenticeship.
There are 2 assessments that make up the Solicitors Qualifying Exam. SQE 1 will test your legal knowledge and SQE 2 assesses practical legal skills. Both assessments need to be passed prior to qualification. In addition to the SQE exams you will need to complete a minimum of two years of qualifying legal work experience through our training contract and pass a character and suitability test.
Our Graduate Solicitor Apprenticeship Programme is a 2 year and 8-month programme that supports you towards taking both SQE 1 and 2 exams along with allowing you to gain the two years qualifying legal experience. We have partnered with a training provider to support you through your studies, prepare you for the assessments and guide you all the way through to completion of the examinations.
There are 2 different routes to complete our Graduate Solicitor Apprenticeship and we work with our successful candidates to provide the route that is most beneficial to their learning.
