Making the move to the SQE work for your firm, with The College of Legal Practice


Free for members

26 Jan 2022 — Online


The SQE is here, but when is the best time to make the switch? What do you need to consider as part of the transition from the LPC? Should your trainees take SQE1 and SQE2 upfront? How are other firms using the SQE as an opportunity to create bespoke training programmes?

Hosted by the Chief Executive Officer of The College of Legal Practice, Dr Giles Proctor, this webinar is an opportunity to hear about the SQE and how you can develop the right SQE training programme that works for your organisation.

Topics covered in the webinar:

  • The Solicitors Qualifying Examination
  • Key Considerations for Developing Programmes
  • Collaborative Design Process
  • Training Models in the Market
  • Student Experiences from the first SQE1

There will be an opportunity to ask any questions you have about either the SQE or how to build a customised SQE training programme.

Background on Speaker – Dr Giles Proctor, CEO, The College of Legal Practice

Dr Giles Proctor qualified as a solicitor with Addleshaw Goddard in Manchester and practiced in corporate and commercial law before entering teaching and completing his PhD.

Giles has designed and delivered commercial diploma courses and corporate training for ‘magic circle’ law firms, whilst at Nottingham Law School and the University of Law. He managed the successful opening of Kaplan Law School, delivering postgraduate legal education, in partnership with Nottingham Law School, to over 16 City firms. Whilst leading Kaplan Law School, the Law School was contracted by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to design and develop the assessment for the changing QLTS exam regime, which has now shaped the SQE assessment regime.

Giles helped found Roehampton Law School (the Law School), which opened in September 2015, the teaching at the Law School being guided by the philosophy of ‘law in practice’, teaching law to students in the context of legal practice, using tutors who are overwhelmingly ex-practitioners. He joined The College of Legal Practice as Chief Executive Officer in February 2020 and leads our business engagement, collaborating with firms and Universities to develop bespoke training programmes around professional education, including SQE.
