Course overview

The City Law School has partnered with QLTS Advantage to provide an online training course to prepare lawyers for the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS) assessments administered by Kaplan UK. The scheme, implemented by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, gives lawyers from other jurisdictions the opportunity to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales without having to complete domestic training. The scheme also offers Solicitors with the skills and credentials to operate in 48 countries and 6 continents.

We prepare students for the QLTS assessments by providing blended-courses consisting of self-paced online training and Live Tuition Weekends conducted by City Law School lecturers who are currently teaching City's LPC course.

The QLTS exam will be replaced by the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) in late 2021, which will come with various new challenges for delegates, such as a 2-year Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) requirement. There are only 4 MCT administrations and 3 OSCE administrations remaining before the transition to the new route. Delegates who pass the MCT by 2021 the latest, will be 'grandfathered' into the QLTS route which means they will have an option to sit two more OSCE exams after 2021 (in 2022) OR take the new SQE II, which is very similar to the current QLTS OSCE. By choosing the QLTS route, you won't have to satisfy the 2-year work experience requirement.

See the QLTS FAQ for more info.
