So I now know with the new way to qualify as a solicitor a law degree nor GDL are Not compulsory to take
In theory, a person with a Chemistry degree who passed the SQE 1&2 would qualify as a solicitor eventhough they had no GDL
Therefore I would like to study a non-law degree
However, though the GDL isn’t compulsory, I’m unsure how someone would learn the content of law needed for the exams
I’ve seen that a person would need to do a PGDL and then pass the LLM SQE1&2 (on the UoLaw website this would cost nearly £32,000)
Could someone please enlighten me through this new route and the cheapest possible route? I would be grateful for any input - thanks!
I am planning to study a degree completely unlinked with Law to open up my options in case a legal career doesn’t work out
Thanks for any help

Hi i was thinking of studying a non-law degree and doing a GDL afterwards. (I've chosen now just to do a law degree).
There is an SQE preparation course offered by the university of law. This course prepares you for the SQE as the name suggests. Here is the link to read about it - https://www.law.ac.uk/study/postgrad...ntials/online/
It would maybe be worth emailing the University of law asking the question about funding. Also the Lawyer portal website is a great help for aspiring lawyers.

Thank you but that SQE preparation only prepares you for the SQE 1 assessment 1 and not the second assessment for the Sqe 1
