The latest news from Lawyer 2B about the Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE), also known as the ‘super-exam’. The SQE is set to be introduced in 2020 and will radically transform the legal education landscape.

Students who start a law degree before August 2020 (assuming the SQE is introduced on time) will be able to choose whether to train via the old route or do the SQE. The Solicitors Regulation Authority is preparing for a long period of transition.

Students who start a law degree after 2020 WILL have to go down the SQE route.
