QLTT

Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test enables lawyers who are qualified in certain jurisdictions outside England and Wales to qualify as solicitors in England and Wales. 

 

QLTT - Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test is a conversion test. It enables lawyers who are qualified in certain jurisdictions outside England and Wales (and barristers of England and Wales) to qualify as solicitors in England and Wales.


ELIGIBILITY CRITERION:
The QLTT covers four main subject areas (known as Heads). Not all lawyers taking the test will be required to sit all four Heads as it is dependent upon the jurisdiction in which a lawyer is qualified. Before sitting the test all candidates will be required to apply to the Law Society for a Certificate of Eligibility.
This Certificate will state which Head(s) a candidate is required to pass and any requirement for further training, if any.
 
No candidate will be able to sit the test without providing a Certificate of Eligibility.  
The process for issuing Certificates of Eligibility normally takes approximately 6-8 weeks. Therefore it is essential that you submit your completed application to the Law Society at an early stage.
The test aims to assess the ability of the candidate to practice as a solicitor in England and Wales.
Written Examinations will require a candidate to demonstrate:
An ability to solve legal problems in a practical context.
A clear understanding of substantive legal knowledge.
An ability to apply substantive legal knowledge to practical problems.
An ability to deliver appropriate solutions to legal problems.
Oral Examinations will require a candidate to demonstrate:
 
Knowledge and understanding of the principles of the common law and the manner in which they apply in practice.
A working knowledge of the legal system.
A working knowledge of the principles of statutes and substantive law.
Competence in the English Language.
