Our new LLM SQE Prep course will prepare you to undertake the SQE exams you must pass to qualify as a practising solicitor. The course is designed to equip you with skills and knowledge you'll need to secure a role in the legal profession, business or banking. From dealing with clients and providing advocacy to case analysis and legal research, you'll gain a strong skillset.
If you've already completed and passed your SQE 1 Prep at another institution, you can study the SQE 2 Prep at UWE Bristol. To qualify for the LLM qualification, you'll need to complete both the SQE 1 and 2 and a choice of taught options and/or a dissertation project. On completion, you'll have the option to progress to further study.
Our graduates secure roles in many different law firm businesses, practising various types of law. These include working in small high-street practices undertaking criminal defence work, working as partners in City law firms, and in-house counsel, for example.
Some of our Law School students have secured a training contractbefore undertaking our courses, some combining legal work. Others benefit from our award-winning University Careers Service, where you'll access CV clinics, careers talks, 'ask the experts' events and mock interviews, to help you stand out from the competition.
You'll benefit from a personalised learning experience, complemented by individual support from an academic personal tutor. Your tutor will work closely with you during your studies and offer you careers guidance.
You can also take advantage of our mentoring scheme, where you'll be paired with an external solicitor or barrister, many of which are former students. This will provide you with a valuable opportunity to learn more about your career options from a professional in practice.
Plus, our pro bono Business and Law Clinic will enable you to gain a range of qualifying work experience in the legal profession. You'll have a chance to give back to the community, while enhancing your employability. Any work you undertake in the Clinic, or secure through our local links, contributes towards the qualifying work experience you need to become a solicitor.
