Abstract

The development of the Solicitor’s Qualification Examination (SQE) is often attributed to the Legal Education Training Review (LETR), specifically to the section in the Executive Summary which says “The current system of [legal services education and training] does not consistently ensure that desired levels of competence are reliably and demonstrably achieved.” . Other papers in this Special Issue will unpack the intention of the LETR team in making that statement, this one will focus on the SQE – what people hope and fear about it, what has been claimed for it and how it sits within our understanding of assessment and of assessment as evidence of legal education.
