The new route to qualification for solicitors

Round table discussion

Practitioner event people watching session

Building on the success of previous Nottingham Law School Round Table events, we are running a further session to discuss the new rules around the qualification of solicitors (the first sitting of SQE 1 now taking place on 8 and 11 November), the latest on Qualifying Work Experience, what the SRA is saying about advocacy training, and the implications of all of this for law firms and legal service providers in England and Wales.

This event is for law firms and legal services providers only.
