The Solicitors Qualifying Exam
Starting in September 2021, the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) is a new common assessment that those wishing to qualify as a solicitor must pass. We’ve been preparing for the implementation of the new SQE system since the SRA decided to make the changes. As the SRA finalise different parts of the system, we are incorporating them into our courses. Find out more about the SQE and what it means for you.
Your future career
We have a dedicated Employability team who will support you in your search for a training contract; the number of Nottingham Law School graduates gaining a training contract or paralegal work is consistently high.
At Nottingham Law School we don’t view the LPC in isolation. It leads to a training contract and we can provide the support required to give you the best possible start to your legal career:
– Our Employability team provide seminars with advice about training contract applications and interview techniques.
– We will review your training contract applications and formulate individual career plans. We also provide a practical interview preparation service.
– We provide a mentoring scheme with trainees from local law firms to provide support and guidance and a personal view of what to expect from life in the profession.
– Employability and commercial awareness are given appropriate focus, which provides a true bridge into practice.
– We maintain regular contact with firms specialising in all areas of law.
The course skills are advocacy, interviewing, research, writing and drafting and these are often seen as providing the most demanding, and hopefully rewarding, elements of the course. We give particular attention to the written skills of research and writing and drafting; we take seriously the concerns of many firms about the capacity of trainees to handle this type of work in the early part of their training contracts.
Theoretical material is kept to a minimum, and the emphasis is normally on practice and feedback to develop the skills you will need on entering the profession.
