The SQE Syllabus

The SQE syllabus is comprehensive and covers legal areas which had been taught over several years in UK universities in the LLB degree or GDL, and during the Legal Practice Course (LPC), the previous vocational stage of the domestic route for qualification in England and Wales. In addition, the SQE assessments test your legal skills which can only be acquired through regular practice or substantial legal experience.

It has therefore taken us several years to design, develop and enhance, initially our QLTS course programmes, and then several more years to complete the necessary adjustments to our course materials to ensure they meet the SRA Specification and Kaplan requirements.

While we are not aiming to provide sample material for each and every aspect of the course, we do hope the SQE 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 SQE1

The Functioning Legal Knowledge (FLK) is the first part of the SQE assessments, also known as SQE1. The exam includes 360 questions in a multiple choice format which is divided into two exams of 180 questions each.

The sample materials include excerpts from the textbooks, multiple choice practice questions, digital flash cards, mock tests, SQE Video Library and revision notes.

18 SQE1 Textbooks

The study pack includes 18 textbooks with over 3,000 pages in total. The textbooks have been specifically written for the SQE and cover the entire SRA syllabus.

The textbooks are offered in a hard copy format and sent by a special courier to any destination in the world in days.

They are updated regularly to reflect any changes in the law

You can access a sample chapter from one of the textbooks.

SQE1 Digital Flash Cards

The SQE1 course includes access to 5,000+ digital flash cards with short questions and answers on each of the topics covered by the syllabus.

The flash cards are organised in accordance with the specific topics for each practice area assessed on SQE1 so you can focus only on the areas of difficulty and not rehash material you are already comfortable with.

The digital flash cards will help you master the technical elements which can easily be forgotten given the large volume of the content, and to reinforce your knowledge before you attempt the mock tests.

You can access a demo version of the resource with 100+ flash cards.

The SQE2 assessment is divided into two parts: SQE2 oral tests interviewing and advocacy skills, whilst SQE2 written tests your legal research, legal drafting, legal writing, and case and matter analysis skills.

SQE2 is a practical exam and involves, for example, simulations of solicitor/client interactions, file reviews and court-based scenarios. The six skills are assessed through simulated legal environments known as ‘stations’.

The SQE2 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 SQE Skills Online.

The mock exams provide an 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 six sample SQE2 mock exams with model answers:

  • Wills and Probate/Interviewing (executors and administration)
  • Dispute Resolution/Advocacy (application to set aside a default judgment)

Mock Practice Stations with Tutor Feedback

The SQE2 preparation course will 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 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.
