Solicitor Qualifying Exam (SQE) Courses

The Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is being phased in to become the new centralised way to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. It will eventually replace the LPC route to practice. ULaw has developed a range of new courses, including conversion courses, that will prepare you for a career as a solicitor, as well as SQE success.

The University of Law offer a number of scholarships and bursaries available to help their students to achieve their career ambitions. With a fund of over £2 million available, the scholarships offered for the LPC and GDL range from financial contributions to full course fee payments and are awarded based on merit, need or a combination of the two. 

Information about each scholarship and the eligibility criteria can be found on the ULaw scholarships page.
