Course content

SQE2 tests practical legal skills and is divided into two parts. The first part involves an oral examination testing interviewing and advocacy skills and the second part tests a candidate’s written skills on legal drafting, legal research, legal writing and case and matter analysis.

The SQE preparation course includes the following:

  • Course Handbook
  • Practice area summaries featuring 200 pages that encapsulate the essentials elements of law with each practice area divided into separate sections that deal with the main subjects that the assessment tests.
  • Over 2,500 digital flash cards, each featuring brief questions and answers on all the topics relating to the law covered by the SQE2 syllabus.
  • The SQE Video Library contains over 80 video tutorials covering more than 20 hours of lectures relating to law which are disseminated into smaller topic areas covering certain parts of the syllabus in more depth.
  • Practice questions that cover the practice areas featured in the syllabus which are based on multiple exercises applied to a case study or scenario that relates to that specific practice area. As a further aid, the questions are accompanied by the various document and forms that a candidate may encounter during the formal examination, for example witness statements, letters of claim, bail applications, probate applications, wills, property purchase deeds and so forth.
  • SQE Skills Online is an interactive facility featuring over 60 exercises together with a 130-page textbook. These are complemented with video and audio material that deal with aspects of legal drafting and writing, advocacy, interviewing, advising, legal research and case and matter analysis.
  • Legal Skills Video Workshops feature over 100 videos including role-play scenarios that focus on interviewing and advocacy together with content presented by a law tutor that covers legal writing and offers guidance on the drafting of the most common legal documents.
  • 250 mock exams covering each of the five legal practice areas and the six skills. These mock exams will enable a candidate to strengthen their legal knowledge and perfect their practical skills. Samples of various mock exams can be accessed for further.
  • Mock practice stations provide the opportunity for candidates to partake in one-to-one online client interviewing and advocacy scenarios with an experienced tutor who will also offer personal feedback aligned with the SRA Marking and Moderating Policy as well as Kaplan’s standards.
  • English writing exercises which will enable candidates to practise their skills in producing relevant, clear and accurate written English of an acceptable standard.
