Changes to legal education and training Legal education and training has been subject to a detailed review by professional regulators in the legal sector. The review has examined the routes to qualification as a barrister or solicitor. The Bar Standards Board (BSB) no longer requires the study of a 'Qualifying Law Degree' (QLD), however, the study of what are referred to as the 'seven legal foundations of knowledge' is still required before the vocational stage of bar training. All our undergraduate law degrees meet this requirement. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has now introduced the Solicitors Qualifying Examination route to qualification. This route requires a degree in any subject or equivalent level 6 qualification. All our law degrees cover the legal foundations of knowledge. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board (BSB) have issued a common protocol for guidance. This can be found by visiting the SRA web pages Solicitors Qualifying Examination and Common Protocol on the Academic Stage of training. You may also find some helpful information in the Law Society of England and Wales guide to the Solicitors Qualifying Examination. You can find out more about the changes at our open days and applicant days. Why study Law at Leeds Beckett University...
