BARBRI SQE2 Prep provides practitioner expertise in practical transactions and legal skills. BARBRI tells you the criteria and standards to which you are being assessed, shows you how to undertake the task and provides multiple practice opportunities to hone your skills.

Our two course options are offered twice a year leading into the scheduled exams in April and October.


The Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE)

Course media


Skills lectures

BARBRI SQE2 Prep's faculty consists of experienced solicitors and barristers who are qualified in England and Wales, they will guide you to master the skills required to succeed in SQE2. The Skills Explanations, available as interview-style lectures, are wholly examination-driven, and are carefully crafted to fully interpret the exam criteria and give you tips on how to succeed.


BARBRI will provide you with a short workbook to supplement the skills explanations.

Scaffolding activities

These are guided interactive learning activities which will take the knowledge you have gained watching the Skills Explanations and reading the workbook and apply it to an exam style scenario. Each activity breaks down the different steps you’ll need to master each skill assessed in SQE2.


With our self-practice activities, you get the opportunity to have a go at doing a whole exam question yourself. You’ll receive instant access to self-assessment materials so you can confidently review your own work. You’ll find out how you’re doing, where you can improve, and you’ll even have the chance to mark your peers’ work and have them mark yours, too.

Practice feedback

This is the most valuable asset on the SQE2 course. You have the opportunity to get individual personalised feedback from a BARBRI assessor in every skill assessed in SQE2 through Practice Feedback Activities.

As well as workshops, there'll be strategy sessions and Office Hours sessions, where you drop in to meet your mentors. They'll guide you on anything from how to tackle questions and improve your skills to queries about your own progress.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
