Teaching and Learning Seminar – “The end of the law degree? The Solicitors Qualifying Examination in England and Wales”

28 September, 2017

In this seminar, Professor Paul Maharg shall be examining the educational case for and against the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), and for such assessments generally in legal education.  Will the SQE impose yet another layer of regulation upon undergraduate legal education?  Will it improve professional standards?  Will it encourage or suppress innovation in education?  In the presentation recent examples of common entry assessments in law and their alternatives will be analysed, and the alternatives to common entry examination that regulators in other professions such as medicine have evolved when dealing with many of the same contextual issues facing the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). 

Date: 28 September 2017 (Thursday)
Time: 12:45 pm  – 2:15 pm
Venue: Classroom 4, CUHK Graduate Law Centre, 2/F., Bank of America Tower, Central (Map
