Many thanks

I have a new question
I am a law graduate (domestic or overseas) – what should I do?2021-05-12T15:24:10+01:00

As a law graduate you may need a refresher in the ‘substantive law’ subjects, and will almost certainly need to study the ‘practitioner’ areas of SQE1. The ‘practitioner’ areas are those you would normally study on an LPC course.

If you are in this position, our ‘SILVER’ or ‘BRONZE’ packages are primarily aimed at your needs.

GOLD Package includes: access to all online study materials providing audio lectures and practice MCQ’s across all areas of SQE1 via our learning management system, unlimited access to live online workshops and a nominated personal tutor £995
SILVER Package includes: access to all online study materials providing audio lectures and practice MCQ’s across all areas of SQE1 via our learning management system, plus complimentary access to 12 live online workshops £695
BRONZE Package includes: access to all online materials providing audio lectures and practice MCQ’s across all areas of SQE1 plus the option to purchase and attend our live online workshops £495 (£250 ‘early bird’ if booked before 2022)

I am a non-law graduate and have never studied law before – what should I do?2021-05-12T15:25:00+01:00

As a non-law graduate looking to study both the substantive law and practitioner elements of SQE1, and perhaps due to work or personal commitments unable to commit to a full time traditional academic law course, our GOLD package is aimed at you.

Ostensibly you will be self-motivated, dedicated and able to commit to a self-study programme.

GOLD Package includes: access to all online study materials providing audio lectures and practice MCQ’s across all areas of SQE1 via our learning management system, unlimited access to live online workshops and a nominated personal tutor £995
SILVER Package includes: access to all online study materials providing audio lectures and practice MCQ’s across all areas of SQE1 via our learning management system, plus complimentary access to 12 live online workshops £695
BRONZE Package includes: access to all online materials providing audio lectures and practice MCQ’s across all areas of SQE1 plus the option to purchase and attend our live online workshops £495 (£250 ‘early bird’ if booked before 2022)

I am seeking a traditional learning environment:
If you are seeking a traditional academic law course, then in all reality Legal Study Skills is probably not for you, and we will be happy to recommend an appropriate provider, depending on your needs.

You making the right choice is important for us at Legal Study Skills, and we will be happy to offer you genuinely impartial advice.
