The University of Law (ULaw) has announced new agreements with The London School of Economics, The University of Nottingham, Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL), The University of Bedfordshire, The University of Hull, and Teesside University to guarantee SQE course places for the next generation of solicitors.
The new agreements offer a range of benefits for students, culminating in a guaranteed place on the ULaw SQE course of their choice after graduation. During their studies, ULaw will be supporting students with a range of workshops, including how to best tackle multiple choice and single best answer questions, as well as looking at the skills needed to pass SQE 2.
Additionally, ULaw will be providing guaranteed places for students at these universities on their Legal Practice Course options, for those who choose to qualify under the current tried and tested route.
Students at partner universities will be eligible to apply for an exclusive Future Lawyers Scholarship, from a fund of £250,000. Scholarships will be awarded based on a range of academic and widening access criteria, with the aim of improving access to the legal profession.
This announcement serves to expand ULaw’s offering to aspiring solicitors, with ongoing partnerships already in place with The University of East Anglia, The University of Exeter, The University of Sheffield, The University of Reading, The University of Liverpool, The University of Southampton, The University of Surrey, The University of Leicester, Newcastle University, University of Chester and Birkbeck, University of London.
Peter Crisp, Pro Vice Chancellor External, at ULaw, said: “We are delighted to be entering into further new partnerships following the success of current partnerships. We look forward to guiding
future generations of lawyers through the forthcoming changes to qualifying as a solicitor and supporting them to achieve their ambitions.”
