Testimonials

Liam

Absolutely fantastic, very well condensed! Colour highlighted notes were extremely helpful and the structure of the lectures/modules are well executed and easy to understand. The diagrams are the cherry on top for an SQE preparation course. It wasn’t like opening up a law text book and getting drenched in cases.

I am delighted that I discovered this course, which made passing the SQE so much more manageable for me. I found the videos, diagrams and notes extremely helpful and thorough. I also found the mock exams useful, as they gave me a lot of confidence. I am unsure how I would have passed the SQE without it. Outstanding course – highly recommend for anyone wanting to pass.
