Course summary

Since 2015, UWTSD has offered a range of law joint honours degrees, coupled with Public Services, Business, Policing and Criminology. In 2018, the Solicitors Regulations Authority (SRA) announced the plan to dispense with multiple routes into practice instead of introducing a single entry point with the Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE). This means that universities no longer have to be accredited to offer a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD), nor do students need to have a QLD or the Legal Practice Course (LPC). Students need to have been taught the knowledge needed to pass the SQE. This course proposes to combine the foundations of law, already delivered in the joint honours degrees, with essential and corresponding practice modules, thus making it SQE compliant. This will make it easier for students to enter the SQE and remove the need for the LPC.
