Master of Laws in Law and Legal Practice (Solicitor)

LLM Law Conversion with SQE1

Award on completion: Master of Laws in Law and Legal Practice (Solicitor)

This comprehensive training programme has been designed for non-law graduates who want to qualify on the SQE route to become a solicitor in England and Wales.


This course gives you the foundational knowledge of the law you need for a successful career as a solicitor and will fully prepare you for the SQE1 assessment. It will also start to develop the portfolio of skills that are assessed in SQE2.
