BARBRI Global has partnered with MBL to provide support to students, law firms and corporate clients so they can have better access to Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) preparation courses, as well as ongoing professional development courses.
MBL, which is a leading provider of continuing professional development training, will now also offer BARBRI’s SQE preparation courses to its client community. The partnership will offer a simple pathway for MBL clients to access the new SQE training provision, while ensuring that students have access to the best possible preparation and resource materials for the SQE assessments, including BARBRI’s legal exam preparation expertise and MBL’s array of legal training resources.
Lucie Allen, managing director for BARBRI Global, said: “MBL is a trusted provider to thousands of organisations and has extensive reach with over 2,600 course topics available to support learning and development. We know many of these organisations are actively exploring workforce strategies which will incorporate the SQE as they bring talent into their organisation or look to support existing talent through to qualification. Through this partnership, we hope to be able to support MBL clients as they make the transition from the Legal Practice Course (LPC) to SQE and plan for their future approach.”
Morgan Rigby, chair of MBL Seminars, said: “Our expertise is in post-qualification experience, and we recognise that we need to provide our clients with a full service. We are delighted to partner with BARBRI, who have decades of experience doing this globally. We can now offer a seamless ‘backpack to briefcase’ option as clients navigate these new SQE waters, comfortable in the knowledge that they are in safe hands with products of the highest quality and unparalleled value”.
