Nottingham Law School has introduced a final year Applied Legal Knowledge pathway to its LLB (Hons) Law degree to prepare graduates for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (part one) when it is implemented.

Undergraduate students who are intending to qualify as either a solicitor or a barrister will study the practical application of law through a series of modules which cover the SQE curriculum.

Modules include Commercial and Corporate Law; Criminal Law and Practice; Dispute Resolution in Contract or Tort; Professional Conduct and Legal Systems; Property Law and Practice; Wills and Trusts; and Employer Challenge.

Dean of Nottingham Law School, Professor Janine Griffiths-Baker, said: “As one of the largest and most innovative law schools in the UK, we are well-placed to respond to changes in legal education.  This new pathway for our qualifying law degree will enhance our existing high-quality provision.”
