“I prefer online learning because I can fit it around my various jobs, busy social life, and I can work from wherever I am. I spend time abroad during the year, so the online option is ideal.”

If you have been offered a training contract, you need to make sure the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has checked your “character and suitability” to be a solicitor.
This may take at least six months to complete if you have:
- Committed certain criminal offences
- Been found guilty of an academic offence
- Had serious financial issues (such as bankruptcy, Individual Voluntary Arrangements or County Court Judgments)
- Been subject to adverse regulatory findings
- Demonstrated any other behaviour that we would not expect of a solicitor (for example behaviour that was dishonest, violent or discriminatory)
Please take a look the SRA Suitability Test 2011 for more information and fill in the eligibility application if you need to tell them about any issues.
If you have nothing to tell the SRA, you can inform them of this when you and your employer let them know your training is due to start.
English language requirements
If you have completed a degree outside the UK and you do not come from a ‘majority English speaking country’, please provide a certified copy of one of the approved English Language Tests.
