Course content

SQE1 tests the Functioning Legal Knowledge (FLK) in two multiple choice tests of 180 questions each. The SQE1 courses include professionally written textbooks, video tutorials, mock exams, online training and tutor support and online resources.

  • 18 textbooks with over 3,000 pages whose content covers the complete SRA syllabus and which has been written specifically for SQE1.
  • Over 5,000 digital flash cards, each featuring brief questions and answers on all the topics covered by SQE1, organised into the various areas of practice which align to the syllabus. These cards help candidates to reinforce learning and fully comprehend the technical elements of the law.
  • Summary notes with all the content you need to know to pass SQE1. There are more than 500 pages of content, including summaries of the key points and the main legal principles of each subject. They also include flowcharts, diagrams, and tables, which will help you visualise the key concepts.
  • The SQE Question Bank featuring over 2,500 multiple choice questions that cover a comprehensive range of topics and the legal knowledge necessary to achieve each practice objective. Every question offers five possible answers together with a fact pattern and an explanation as to how the correct answer can be arrived at and why the remaining four answers are incorrect.
  • The SQE Video Library contains over 200 video tutorials covering more than 60 hours of lectures and therefore offers a broad outline of the complete syllabus whilst also focusing on more specific topics enabling the syllabus to be comprehensively considered
  • 30 mock tests featuring 90 questions each for both FLK 1 and FLK 2 thus allowing candidates to test their progress by attempting realistic test questions within a given time limit in a similar format to the actual SQE1 assessment
