Becoming a Lawyer - Navigating the UK Legal System

The UK Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is a new, centralised assessment system for aspiring solicitors in England and Wales. The SQE replaces the previous system of training and qualifying as a solicitor, which involved completing a law degree or graduate diploma in law, followed by a period of practical training and passing the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).

The SQE is divided into two parts: SQE1 and SQE2. SQE1 tests candidates’ knowledge of legal principles and practice, while SQE2 tests their ability to apply that knowledge in practical scenarios. Candidates must pass both parts of the SQE in order to qualify as a solicitor.
