About us

As a not-for-profit our goal is simple – to provide flexible legal training and work experience to people from non-traditional backgrounds so that they can fulfil their potential and qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales.

Over the past six years our team has trained thousands of aspiring lawyers in casework methodology, giving them the knowledge and skills to complete meaningful work on client cases. This expertise is distilled into our QWE and SQE programmes.
