Course Information

SQE2 Advocacy preparation courses

Prepare for the SQE2 advocacy assessments with our flexible training that fits around your work and can be adapted according to your needs and your current advocacy skills.

You can access our expert tuition through e-learning, online workshops and one-to-one coaching.  Select one or more elements of the training to build your own programme.

For anyone new to advocacy we recommend starting with the e-learning, followed by the workshops and then one-to-one coaching to practise your skills.

SQE2 Advocacy e-learning

This suite of e-learning will
provide the foundation knowledge and techniques which will help you to develop
strong advocacy skills and support you in preparing for both advocacy
assessments.    There are examples of advocacy throughout the
course in both criminal and civil cases.

 The course is broken into short modules which you can work through at your own pace. 

 The e-learning takes approximately 6 hours to complete.

SQE2 Advocacy one-to-one coaching

Practise your advocacy in a one-to-one coaching session.

Your coaching session will be based on a mock assessment.  You can select either criminal or dispute resolution.   You will receive the
assessment on the day of your coaching session and we recommend timing your preparation to replicate the time you have during the live assessment.  

During the session you will present your application or submissions and receive tutor feedback from an experienced tutor to help you to improve your advocacy skills. 

The feedback will cover any gaps in your preparation, the structure of your application or submissions and your presentation style including volume, pace and tone.  At the end of the session you will receive a person prescription with guidance on the steps you need to take to improve your skills.
