50+ Years of innovation in legal exam prep

With BARBRI, you’ll gain the confidence that comes from courses backed by years of proven experience in both multiple-choice legal testing and mixed subject testing.

BARBRI has built a reputation as an experienced, innovative and effective provider of legal exam preparation. While the methods of testing in England and Wales may be changing, they are changing to match precisely the methodologies in which BARBRI preparation excels.


SQE Prep that fits around you

Fit the course around your life and study whenever you want with multiple flexible course durations that lead to the scheduled exams. You’ll also be able to customise your course by adjusting your Personal Study Plan, if necessary. 

Spread the exam and preparation course fees over a longer time period, so you can adapt the costs to your budget.

Personalised learning powered by innovation

Access all course materials online at any time through your Personal Study Plan (PSP). Your PSP guides every assignment and activity throughout your entire SQE1 Prep course so that you can go at the pace that is right for you. Pre-recorded video lectures, soft and hard copy workbooks and thousands of practice questions build knowledge over time and deliver the right combination of substance and skills on a flexible schedule.

You will also study with the help of your Intuitive Study Assistant and Coach (ISAAC), a powerful engine that runs BARBRI SQE Prep courses. ISAAC takes data about what is most likely to be tested and learns from you as you work, teaching you exactly what you need to know to pass.


1:1 support to help you succeed

All SQE Prep students will be assigned a personal Learning Coach, a qualified solicitor who will be mentoring you one-on-one throughout your course.

You would be able to book time with your personal Learning Coach to see how you are progressing with your studies. They will also conduct livestream workshops, provide tips, and help you with any study issues.

The SQE at a Glance

Split in two stages

The first stage tests legal knowledge, and the second tests legal skills. BARBRI offers prep courses for both.

You must take both parts

Students must take both stages of the SQE, unless they qualify for an exemption based on a law degree from another jurisdiction or an LPC.

Exam formats are varied

Unlike the GDL/LPC exams, the SQE is comprised of a series of exams that include mixed subject questions and multiple-choice formats.

“The structure and pace of the Personal Study Plan helped me have a comprehensive plan and approach to reviewing the material.”

Eric J. Khorshad

“Everything you need is in the BARBRI course, and you have more than enough to get you prepared, you just need to dedicate the time and remember to stay calm! It breaks a seemingly insurmountable task down into manageable pieces so it’s doable. Additionally, being able to know my weak areas made my study time a lot more efficient.”
