CLP and TBLS partner to provide SQE preparation courses

(via CLP) The College of Legal Practice and the Truman Bodden Law School in the Cayman Islands partner to provide SQE preparation courses.

The College of Legal Practice’s virtual preparation courses will be made available to students studying internationally at the Truman Bodden Law School in the Cayman Islands.

The courses developed by the College will assist students in their preparation to seek access to the legal profession of England and Wales through the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) regime, the new regulatory route to qualification. From September 2021, the current vocational training regime with entry via the Legal Practice Course (LPC) is starting to be phased out. The College is determined to make this new SQE qualification route available to future solicitors in both the UK and internationally.

The College’s SQE preparation courses guide learners through SQE1 and SQE2 and equips students with the legal skills they need to begin work as a legal professional. The courses prepare students to pass the SQE assessments, whilst developing their skills in identifying, analysing and applying legal principles and developing key transactional skills. The modules are delivered virtually and are flexible and adaptive to the requirements of both students and employers. All elements of the courses are specifically designed for online learning, meaning students can work around their own, personal work and life commitments. With part-time and full-time course options available, students can learn at the pace that suits them. Built into the courses is significant levels of one-to-one supervisory support.

Scott Atkins, Head of Law at Truman Bodden, said:

“I’m delighted we have partnered with the College of Legal Practice for the delivery of preparatory SQE courses to our students who might wish to undertake the SQE assessments. We particularly like the structure and competitive value of the College’s SQE programmes and the one-to-one support for our students embedded in the provision being offered, which, to me was compelling given the distance involved between students in Cayman and a tutor on the preparatory programmes.”

Giles Proctor, Chief Executive Officer of The College of Legal Practice, commented:

“We are pleased to be able to work with the Truman Bodden Law School and its students to give them the best possible start on their journey to qualify via the SQE. The nature of our offering, which focuses on high quality tuition designed for online and delivered flexibly, is absolutely suited to students based outside the UK. We look forward to developing our offering of strong, practice-focused and competitively priced programmes further and working with future solicitors and employers internationally to achieve their training and development goals.”
