SQE – Yorkshire Union Roundtable with SRA

 

On 9th June the Yorkshire Union held a roundtable with Julie Brannan of the SRA together with a number of important organisations working in the field of delivering the new SQE which is now the path for those who aspire to be a Solicitor .

The Yorkshire Union thanks all of our wonderful speakers who gave up a, very sunny, Wednesday morning to update members of the Yorkshire Union of Law Societies on the impending changes to legal education . President of the Yorkshire Union of Law Societies  Natalie Cosgrove led the session together with Amy Clowrey Associate Solicitor at Switalskis who worked so hard in organising the event .

As promised, please now find attached the PowerPoint that Julie Brannan, Director of Education and Training at the Solicitors Regulation Authority, presented during this virtual event.
