On 16 February 2020, YLAL responded to the Solicitors Regulation Authority's Survey about the Solicitors Qualifying Exam ('SQE').
SQE will be the new way for people to qualify as solicitors. It will be in place from 2021.
YLAL has been engaging throughout the SRA's Training for Tomorrow project. You can view all of YLAL's previous responses about SQE.
YLAL remains concerned at the proposed format and content of the exam, and how our members will be affected.
With thanks to our volunteers who helped with drafting our response: Anna Sheeran Holland, Amy Clowrey, Farah Elhouni, Heather Edwards, and Flavia. Our thanks also to committee member Siobhan Taylor-Ward for co-ordinating the response.
