Qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales

Prepare for the SQE with the largest legal exam prep company in the world.

Why take the SQE?

Passing the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is the first step to becoming a solicitor in England and Wales.

  1. Flexibility and affordability: The SQE offers greater flexibility, allowing you to spread both the preparation course and exam fees over longer time periods to adapt the pace to fit your schedule and budgeting needs.
  2. Learn while you earn: Unlike the full-time LPC, you can earn while learning with BARBRI SQE Prep.
  3. Integrate studies into QWE: The SQE combined with the opportunity for qualifying work experience in place of a traditional training contract allows for more flexible entry into the profession.

BARBRI SQE1 and SQE2 prep

The SQE consists of two stages: SQE1 and SQE2.

  • SQE1 is a computer-based exam testing your functioning legal knowledge by way of multiple-choice questions – a specific skill that requires practice and expertise. After passing SQE1, you will be eligible to apply and sit for the SQE2.
  • SQE2 consists of practical legal skills assessments such as client interviewing, advocacy, case and matter analysis, legal research and written advice, and legal drafting.
