After passing SQE1, prepare with BARBRI to master practical legal skills for SQE2.
Legal qualification in England & Wales has changed. So shouldn’t your prep also change? Now that you’ve aced your SQE1, it’s time to get to grips with the skills-based testing of SQE2.
BARBRI SQE2 Prep provides practitioner expertise in practical transactions and legal skills. BARBRI tells you the criteria and standards to which you are being assessed, shows you how to undertake the task and provides multiple practice opportunities to hone your skills.
Our part-time 12-week course is offered twice a year leading into the scheduled exams in April and October.
Work smarter, not harder
The SQE2 exam
The SQE2 exam will take place over the course of a few days in London and will include four oral assessments and 12 written assessments. Marks from the individual exercises are then combined into one overall mark.
The oral assessments in SQE2 will cover interview and attendance note/legal analysis as well as advocacy. The written assessments will cover case and matter analysis, legal writing, legal research and legal drafting.
The SQE2 exam costs £2,422 in addition to any prep course you take, and the fee is paid directly to The SRA. You can find out more about the cost of the SQE exams here.
Enrol onto your SQE2 Prep course
Maybe BARBRI got you through SQE1. Or you chose another provider but weren’t thrilled with the experience. Maybe you’ve got your LPC behind you. Starting your SQE2 journey can be daunting, but it’s easy to get started with BARBRI.
If you’ve passed your SQE1 course or have agreed an exemption with the SRA you can move straight onto studying for the SQE2. Simply fill out our enrolment form to get started.
BARBRI will be providing you with a short workbook to supplement the skills explanations.
Before you sit SQE2, you’ll complete mock assessments and receive personal feedback from a BARBRI assessor in each skill and subject assessed in SQE2.
Tutor personalised feedback
The practice questions reflect the assessment style of the SQE2 exam which is split between oral and written assessments, covering multiple skills. You will practise these in exam conditions and receive personalised feedback for every skill to exam standard by experienced assessors. This is measured against the criteria as set out by Kaplan, the exam provider.
