How to Become a Lawyer UK

There are many routes to becoming a lawyer in the UK. If you study Law at university, you are required to complete a qualifying Law degree (LLB) before taking the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE). Those who studied something other than Law for their undergraduate degree will need to do an SQE preparation course before sitting the exams. After that, you need to do two years of qualifying legal work experience. Alternatively, the CILEx CPQ route does not require a degree and you can work whilst you study. To become a barrister, further training and qualifications are required.
