New partnership offers courses to prepare for qualification as English solicitor or US attorney
BLC – BARBRI Partnership: Qualifying as a UK/US lawyer.
The British Law Centre (“BLC”) is delighted to announce that we have partnered with BARBRI, the global legal education provider, to offer BLC students and alumni the ability to participate in courses to prepare for qualification as a lawyer in the UK or US. BLC students/alumni will benefit from a 20% discount on BARBRI’s regular prices for these courses.
The BLC-BARBRI partnership offers courses to comprehensively prepare BLC student/alumni for the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE), which is the centralised way to qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales. The SQE can be undertaken by people with a first-level degree (in any subject, not necessarily law) or equivalent level 6 qualification. A fast-track version of the SQE can be utilised by people who are already qualified as lawyers in their home country.
The BLC-BARBRI partnership also applies to BLC students/alumni who wish to study for the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) and qualify as a US attorney.
BARBRI provides industry-leading legal education to prepare applicants to pass the SQE and UBE. It offers comprehensive courses which expertly blend technology and innovative teaching strategies, to prepare candidates for qualifying exams, both in the UK and the US. Its students achieve examination pass rates that are second-to-none and it has over 50 years of experience in helping people to qualify as practising lawyers.
Dr. Stephen Terrett, Director of Studies at the British Law Centre, said:
“The British Law Centre has been teaching law and legal skills throughout Central & Eastern Europe since 1992. We equip students with core knowledge and a range of skills that are extremely helpful in their future legal careers. Our partnership with BARBRI ensures that BLC students/alumni can take the final steps they need to formally qualify as an English or American lawyer. The price of the BLC’s courses are almost covered by the heavily-discounted prices available to BLC students who study one of BARBRI’s courses. That makes this an excellent opportunity, both financially and in terms of career development.”
Chris Howard, University Partnerships Director at BARBRI said:
“It is a pleasure to offer BLC students the opportunity to study with BARBRI. The British Law Centre is renowned for the strength of its preparation for students seeking to practice and BARBRI is proud to work alongside, providing a best-in-class training for qualification.”
