SQE: Approach to assessing skills

13 September – 2 October

We spoke with law firms and in-house legal teams about how they want skills assessed as part of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) – the new, single assessment for qualifying solicitors coming in autumn 2021.

To help us understand the best way to test skills, our roundtable events considered:

  • What we found from SQE1 pilot assessment, in particular the issues we identified in relation to SQE1 skills testing, and progress on SQE2.
  • Involved employers in developing our approach and explored different options for testing skills.
