If you are reading this post, then we are probably safe in categorising you as one of those who being aware of all the recent changes in the geopolitical landscape and in legal sector, realise the increasing value of being professionally flexible, of being able to work across cultures and jurisdictions. So, let’s have a look at how to make the most of the opportunities offered by today’s globalised and rapidly changing market.
The results of the November 2017 OSCE assessment released by Kaplan QLTS in February 2018 shattered the delusion that OSCE is the easier of the two QLTS parts: a Multiple Choice Test (MCT) and an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). While the OSCE pass mark does not differ much from that of the previous years (if anything, it is even slightly lower, 62% compared to 63%-68%), its pass rate has plummeted to the staggering 51%.
The Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme or QLTS is an alternative route for foreign qualified lawyers to qualify in England and Wales as solicitors.
Only foreign qualified lawyers from recognised jurisdictions are eligible to use the QLTS route in order to qualify in England. The list of recognised jurisdictions may be found on Solicitor Regulation Authority website https://www.sra.org.uk/solicitors/qlts/recognised-jurisdictions.page
Are you planning to take the QLTS with a view to qualifying in England and Wales, and feeling put off by the UK’s decision to leave the EU? Then this post is for you as it will attempt to reveal the impact that Brexit (British Exit) may have on the legal profession in general and those qualifying as English solicitors in particular.

The OSCE part of the QLTS exam, is based on the Legal Practice Course (LPC) also known as the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice. LPC is the final vocational stage for becoming a solicitor in England and Wales. So, the LPC books and manuals are the main source to prepare for the QLTS OSCE. All of them are in open access and you may purchase them online either via amazon, ebay, directly from the publisher’s website or second-hand books from those who already successfully passed the QLTS OSCE.
