Ivan Milatović, Legal Manager at publishing company Hachette UK, was a law lecturer at BPP University for over a decade. He shares his insight about the new route to qualification for solicitors in England and Wales. The Solicitors Qualifying Exams (SQE) and Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) will replace the traditional Legal Practice Course (LPC) and two year training contract.
The new route to qualification will replace the LPC and training contract completely by December 2032.
Ivan answers some questions around the two parts of the SQE (SQE 1 and SQE 2), how these differ from the LPC and he contrasts QWE with the two year training contract. This video is in two parts – in part two Ivan shares advice for in-house lawyers when they are recruiting and training trainees on the SQE.
