You will develop the six SQE2 practical legal skills of interviewing, advocacy, case and matter analysis, legal research, legal writing and drafting in order to sit SQE2 and be ready for practice.
There are six units per week throughout the course (two units per week in the part-time courses). Each unit follows our unique dynamic learning model: Prepare, Engage, Consolidate (PEC).
Prepare. You will spend approximately six hours per unit preparing using the University’s virtual learning environment (VLE) where all the resources will be accessible. The Prepare stage includes a rich mixture of learning activities including manual reading, demonstrations, multi-media, preparatory tasks and test your knowledge quizzes.
Engage. The Engage stage involves six, 90-minute classroom based and tutor facilitated face to face workshops where you will be asked to practice and apply the skills you have started to acquire in the Prepare stage. You will have nine contact hours per week with tutors (three hours per week on the part-time course).
Consolidate. You will complete the Consolidate stage using our VLE. This stage will involve short consolidation learning activities focusing on practising the SQE2 skills and regular practice context and foundation law revision tests using our intelligent revision app to refresh the knowledge required for the SQE2 assessments.
The course will also help you prepare for Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) as a trainee solicitor, by helping you to develop the practical legal skills required for practice.
Throughout the course there are regular practice assessments with feedback to help you prepare for the requirements of the real assessments.
