School's Professional Law Institute advises global learning company BARBRI on SQE preparation course

The Professional Law Institute at The Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London has worked with BARBRI to offer advice on BARBRI's SQE preparation course, which was launched at an online event last week.

Student studying

The SQE (Solicitors Qualifying Exam) is a professional qualification, due to begin in September 2021, that will offer a new optional route to becoming a qualified solicitor. BARBRI's preparation course will begin in January 2021 to prepare candidates in time for the inaugural SQE.

Chris Howard, Director of Professional Legal Education, said:

'We have worked with BARBRI for some time to offer our students and alumni the means to further their careers through US bar preparation and we are pleased to expand our relationship and provide a promising path for SQE success.'

Students joining King's to study law in 2020-21 will be entitled to a discount on the cost of BARBRI’s specialist preparation programme. See details below. 

The Professional Law Institute provides a focal point in the School for practice-based education, research and civic engagement. The Institute works to strengthen connections to practitioners and stakeholder institutions in the heart of legal London.
