Hopefully, this is the correct place for this discussion. I'm basically planning on doing a masters in law in September but I'm hesitant to do the LPC or SQE. Just wondering what other law graduates are planning on doing. Are you waiting to see how the SQE route pans out or starting the LPC/SQE in Sept?

The sqe is what I was planning on doing at first as the quickest route. Then, I thought of just working which would not be the best thing to do right now because of the minimum wage. An Llm or a masters in law would make you more qualified. I had to think about it a lot but graduate schemes seem really interesting instead of doing choosing a specific route. Also, after the sqe you could do a history postgraduate. The universities that offer the routes is important. Whether to take the lpc or sqe is what is important because it can affect when to start studying and an sqe is much quicker and newer which most of the time the newest route is what I have been recommended to

Hi Sophia,

I can't decide on whether I should take the sqe or an llm as it will only take you to becoming a solicitor. Before an sqe I carried out an undergraduate in law. I had to switch from a-levels and a btec course before that loads of preparation which never worked out which is quite common. A while afterwards I went back to college to do an access course to higher education so I had to go to university and complete a degree. I only achieved an ordinary degree so doing an sqe would make more sense. I have applied for an IELTS. I changed my route but an Llm sound more interesting

I was thinking of staying away from home, Birmingham University has courses in law except I'm not sure where you can do an SQE except in the University of Law.

Hi hannak1

I am currently completing the LPC, LLM at ULaw and would be more than happy to answer any queries about studying there.

What law masters are you thinking of doing?

As a recent undergraduate law graduate, I appreciate there’s a lot of options in terms of how to best move forward (CILEx, Solicitor Apprenticeships, Paralegal Qualifications, not to mention the countless careers outside of law!!!) and so the best advice I can give is make sure you do your homework – whatever your decision.

I think the SQE is an exciting route to qualification and warrants some time to look into. I have attached the link for ULaw SQE page here. Another good tip for choosing courses and Universities is to look at their open days and talks – be it virtually or in-person.

As above, please do let me know if you have any questions about studying at ULaw.

All the best

I believe some firms are biased towards the LPC but cannot confirm the standing on the SQE as it is too soon to tell.
