QLTS Sample Materials

Sample Material for the QLTS Assessments

The QLTS syllabus is comprehensive and covers legal areas taught over several years in UK universities and during the Legal Practice Course (LPC), the vocational stage of the domestic route for qualification in England and Wales. In addition, the QLTS assessments test your legal skills which can only be acquired through regular practice or substantial legal experience. It has therefore taken us more than two years to design, develop and enhance our QLTS course programmes to make sure they meet the SRA and Kaplan requirements.

While we are not aiming to provide sample material for each and every aspect of the course, we do hope the QLTS sample questions and material below will give you some basic idea as to what to expect when you sign up with us.

The course content can be accessed on your desktop, tablet, and mobile devices, from anywhere in the world.

Sample Material for the OSCE

The OSCE is the second part of the QLTS assessments. The OSCE is divided into two parts. Part I tests interviewing and advocacy/oral presentation skills, whilst Part II tests your online legal research, legal drafting and writing skills.

The OSCE is a practical exam and involves, for example, simulations of solicitor/client interactions, file reviews and court-based scenarios. The five skills are assessed through simulated legal environments known as ‘OSCE stations’.

The OSCE sample material includes summaries for the various practice areas, skills and practice area videos, digital flash cards, mock exams with suggested solutions for self-assessment, and a demo version plus a chapter from the accompanying electronic book of QLTS Skills Online.

250 OSCE Mock Exams

The 250 mock exams cover all legal practice areas and skills assessed on the OSCE.

The mock exams provide ample opportunity for you to deepen your legal knowledge and hone your practical skills. Points to note or proposed submissions for each mock enable you to understand what is required of you and identify areas of development during your preparation.

You can access five sample OSCE mock exams with model answers:

  • Civil Litigation/Advocacy (application to set aside a default judgment)
  • Business Law/Interviewing (dividend, investment and transfer of shares)
  • Probate/Drafting (completing wills using the firm’s template)
  • Property Law/Research (sale of a property with retention of rights)
  • Criminal Litigation/Writing (appeal on conviction)

Practice Area Summaries

The practice area summaries (about 200 pages in total) discuss the essential elements of the law and practice areas, are summarised and divided into sections, and cover the main topics tested in the assessment.

The summaries are excellent for revision purposes and save you the time and hard work in preparing your own notes. They offer all the information needed to enable you to work through the various practice areas with ease and refer back to them during mock and assessment preparation.

You will also receive free periodic updates for the summaries when the law changes.

Legal Skills Video Workshops

The legal skills video workshops include 100+ exclusive videos with role-play scenarios on interviewing, advocacy and oral presentation, including expert tutor’s commentary.

The video workshops also offer presentations delivered by a law tutor with extensive experience in practice on English legal writing and guidance on drafting commonly used documents, and legal research presentations which provide a detailed walkthrough and time-saving examples of how to use both LexisLibrary and Westlaw.

You can watch a sample video on Client Interviewing – How to Ask Questions or a preview of all the videos.

Mock Practice Stations with Tutor Feedback

The OSCE Advantage and Premium Courses offer you the opportunity to undertake online one-to-one mock stations in client interviewing and advocacy with an experienced tutor, who will provide you with feedback on your performance based on Kaplan and the SRA Marking and Moderation Policy.

The mock practice stations are designed to successfully prepare you for the practical assessment and are regarded by many of our former QLTS candidates as one of the most effective ways to genuinely assess your level of knowledge and professional skills before the assessment. The mocks are carried out on Skype, Facetime or GoToMeeting.

You can watch a sample mock station with tutor feedback on client interviewing.

OSCE Video Library

The OSCE Video Library contains 80+ video tutorials, spanning 20+ hours of lectures which cover the substantive and procedural law you will be assessed on in the OSCE assessment.

The videos are broken down into smaller topics and cover various aspects of the syllabus in more detail. They will help you learn and digest the law much faster and solidify your understanding.

You can access the videos on your computer, iPad, iPhone or Android devices.

Get access to a preview of the videos – the first two minutes of each video are at no cost.

OSCE Digital Flash Cards

The OSCE course includes access to 2,000+ digital flash cards with short questions and answers on each of the practice areas covered by the syllabus.

The digital flash cards will help you master the law which can easily be forgotten given the large volume of the content, and to reinforce your knowledge before you attempt the OSCE mock exams and mock stations with tutor feedback.

You can access a demo version with 100 flash cards.

QLTS Skills Online

QLTS Skills Online includes 60+ interactive skill exercises, complemented by video and audio material and a 130-page accompanying textbook.

The resource covers legal writing and drafting, advocacy and oral presentation, interviewing and advising, and legal research. QLTS Skills Online complements and builds on the existing course materials provided to you by QLTS School. You will also be given the chance to put the skills into practice in a realistic case study.

You can access an excerpt from the textbook and a demo version of the resource. A preview of the videos is available below.

English Writing Tasks

The English writing tasks intended to ensure you can use appropriate, clear, precise and acceptable English.

The 15 writing tasks could be on procedural or administrative matters in which you produce a formal letter or email for a client and for a third party.

Each task includes an assignment, specimen letter and commentary to help you assess your performance. The writing tasks should be completed before you attempt the mock exams for self-assessment

Getting Started

Since the introduction of the QLTS in 2011, we’ve trained thousands of foreign lawyers for the QLTS assessments, many of whom are now dual-qualified English solicitors. We can help you achieve this goal too and pass the OSCE, if you have already completed the MCT. Let’s get started.
