The QLTS OSCE books and study materials

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.

All the substantive law LPC / OSCE books and manuals may be roughly divided into two parts: 

  1. Main LPC / OSCE books - university manuals, which one must to read in order to prepare; and
  2. Summary LPC / OSCE books - study guides, which are good for revision purpose and also provide the material from a different perspective.  

You may also watch youtube videos on the same:


There are two main publishers: Oxford University Press (OUP) and College of Law Publishing (CLP). In general terms the OUP LPC/OSCE books looks a bit more concise, while CLP  LPC/OSCE books may be deemed as a bit more more complet. So, it doesn't really matter very much, which one to choose OUP or CLP. The LPC / OSCE books in  Business law, Property law, Probate (Wills and administration of the estate), Civil litigation and Criminal litigation are as follows:
