BARBRI’s Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) Prep courses are your key to success in becoming a solicitor in England and Wales. The exam is split into two assessment stages: a functioning legal knowledge test and a practical skills assessment stage.
BARBRI provides the courses for students for each of the two stages, using innovative online technology to provide them with a structured and effective learning environment. The courses are flexible and adaptable, providing students with all the tools needed for success in SQE1 & 2.


BARBRI’s SQE1 Prep course provides a comprehensive and tailored study of core legal principles with instantaneous online feedback, along with face-to-face workshops and 1:1 mentor support, and is available full or part-time. SQE2 Prep courses combine personalised 1:1 supervision and feedback, with practice-based skills scenarios and developmental tasks, to build competence and confidence.


The SQE can be undertaken by anyone who has a degree, whether in law or otherwise. This means that the path of becoming a solicitor is open to any student who has completed an undergraduate degree, provided they fulfil the remainder of the requirements, such as obtaining the necessary two years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE), meeting English language requirements, in addition to passing the SQE, in order to complete the process. You can find out more about the Solicitors Qualifying Exam here.
