Study type Taught


LLM SQE/Legal Practice is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to sit the Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE1), as well as providing the opportunity for you to obtain an LLM in law. The qualification route to becoming a solicitor changed in 2022 and those wishing to enter the profession must now sit two sets of SQE examinations.

This course will prepare you for life in the legal profession and enhance your employment opportunities. If you are already working in the legal sector, the qualification will enhance your employment prospects and support your performance in your current role.

You will be equipped with the foundational knowledge that is required of a newly qualified solicitor to sit the first of the Solicitors Qualifying examinations (SQE1) as well as introducing you to the requirements of SQE2. You will study a mixture of practice-based and academic subjects delivered in partnership with BARBRI, an award-winning provider of professional legal education. In conjunction with BARBRI, you will explore core areas of functional legal knowledge and and learn how to apply this knowledge to the SQE 1 examination.

You will develop a high-level understanding and critical awareness of current problems in law. You will gradate with a range of transferable legal and personal skills including communication (oral and written), research, critical analysis, time management, teamwork, and applied problem solving.
