'Step-by-step guidance to crack the SQE.' The Commonwealth Lawyer Journal

'Relentlessly practical… all SQE students should invest in this book.' Christina Blacklaws, former President of the Law Society of England and Wales

'An Excellent book. Incredibly useful as a study aid' Sarah Grabham, Head of Bristol Law School (UWE)

Skilfully Passing the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) helps qualified lawyers, aspiring solicitors and students prepare for and pass the exam. From start to finish it provides practical guidance, tips and tools; from choosing a course provider, through to how to be admitted to the Roll of Solicitors.

The SQE is heavily based on the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS), now abolished, so already an established format. This essential title will help you understand the exam, how to prepare for it and ensure what you learn will also benefit you in practice. Complementing your academic study materials, it provides insight and understanding of what you can expect from doing the SQE. It offers practical solutions around questions and challenges when studying and practising for SQE Part 1 and Part 2, such as:

- What strategies will help you with the multiple choice tests?
- How do you deal with emotional/vulnerable clients?
- What do you do when you cannot answer your client's or the judge's question?
- How can you maximise your chances of scoring the highest marks?

Skilfully Passing the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) is an essential textbook for universities, training providers, law firms, businesses and individuals. It teaches you how to explain the law and legal principles in a clear and concise manner which directly links to how you hone your communication skills to deliver a confident performance.
