About BARBRI Foundations in Law
BARBRI Foundations in Law is a short course designed to help you familiarise yourself with the study of law in England and Wales. It can also be taken prior to BARBRI SQE Prep to help students build knowledge ready to tackle the SQE prep courses with greater confidence.
Who is this course for?
BARBRI Foundations in Law has been developed for students looking for an introduction to the study of law in England and Wales, such as those with no previous legal education and overseas lawyers. It will also be suitable for former law students who would like a refresher before embarking on the SQE and may even introduce some concepts not covered at university, but which will be covered in the SQE exams.
If you are looking to proceed on to the SQE, you are recommended to take Foundations in Law in the 4 weeks prior to the BARBRI SQE1 Prep course. Please see our bundles below for more details.
What you will learn
The BARBRI Foundations in Law course runs over four weeks, and you will need to dedicate around 15 hours of study per week to complete the course. The syllabus will give you an introduction to three key areas including:
- The legal system of England & Wales;
- Legal research – how to conduct and present it;
- Core legal terms, concepts, and areas of practice.
An online study guide will provide you with overviews and guidance on each subject.
Short, interactive lectures break down each of the subjects and are easy to schedule around your time commitments.
Interactive, online exercises incorporated into the curriculum help to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the materials.
Online pre-recorded, interactive workshops help to consolidate learning in legal thinking, the application of law, interpreting case law & statute, legal research and presenting client advice.
Self-review questions to help further understanding, including an introduction into SQE1 format of questioning.
Access to Westlaw enables candidates to start developing their legal research skills.
