For the first time this year, students embarking on Nottingham Law School’s LLB law degree will be taking an ‘applied legal knowledge’ pathway in their final year in preparation for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE).
Undergraduate students will study the practical application of the law through a series of modules which cover part one of the SQE curriculum. Modules include commercial and corporate law, criminal law and practice, dispute resolution in contract or tort, professional conduct and legal systems, property law and practice, wills and trusts, and employer challenge.
Dean of Nottingham Law School, Professor Janine Griffiths-Baker, said: “As one of the largest and most innovative law schools in the UK, we are well-placed to respond to changes in legal education. This new pathway for our qualifying law degree will enhance our existing high-quality provision.”
With Goldsmiths, University of London recently announcing plans for a new law degree incorporating the SQE, all eyes will be on other universities to see how they introduce elements of the forthcoming SQE in their curriculums.
