Changes to legal education and training

Legal education and training has been subject to a detailed review by professional regulators in the legal sector. The review has examined the routes to qualification as a solicitor or barrister.

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) no longer requires the study of a 'Qualifying Law Degree' (QLD), however, the study of what are referred to as the 'legal foundations of knowledge' is still required before the vocational stage of bar training. Our GDL course and our LLM version meet this requirement.

In addition, the route to qualification as a solicitor is changing. If you're starting this course in September 2021, you'll have the option to qualify as a solicitor under the existing route, or the via Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) during the ‘transitional period’. After which, different provisions apply. For full details of the transitional period and the new SQE, please see the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) published guidance. Further information can be found by visiting additional SRA web pages Solicitors Qualifying Examination and Common Protocol on the Academic Stage of training.

Our Law in Practice guest lecture series provides opportunities for you to network and hear from high-profile speakers from a range of backgrounds and contexts. Past speakers have included politician and human rights activist Baroness Chakrabarti.

If you choose to get involved, you could develop key transferable skills, such as The Law Clinic brings local law firms even closer to the university’s student community and will provide you with invaluable first-hand experience of legal practice, enhancing your employability prospects.
