The structure of Solicitors Qualifying Examination was helpful and how the videos are presented. The layout is great and optimised in a way that also makes it phone friendly so you can truly access it anywhere! Not only very engaging and user friendly, but sets you for your clear path to success.

I found the Future Solicitor to be incredibly easy to use and extremely useful. The way the material was broken down into single points of the specification, accompanied by clear explanations and helpful diagrams, made it easy to engage with and remember. It was exactly what I needed and allowed me to cover more ground in my studies. I truly believe that traditional institutions will have to move towards this model of teaching to effectively prepare students for the SQE.
