GUIDE FOR 2020 NEWLY QUALIFIED SOLICITORS – MAY UPDATE

Back in January I released my annual 2020 NQ Guide. At the time of print this seemed consistent with the market and the predictions were very much in-line with what we would normally expect and advise. However, with the arrival of Covid-19, almost overnight everything changed, meaning my advice to trainees has been adjusting daily.

Over the past two months I have spoken with many trainees, with each individual appearing to have a different story. Due to this I have seen no clear picture emerge on the advice to give so felt compelled to do some research and put some information together.

Below are several links offering advice to those training and those coming up to qualification.

The first article was taken from the lawyer and is an interesting one. It gives helpful advice about possible delays to qualification. I found this to be a positive blog.

The Law Society has written information to support trainee solicitors during the pandemic. This is a good article also.

I found this on the SRA website. Many of you may have seen it but I felt that it was worth including.

I also found some information on the Solicitor's Qualifying Examination. Again, I felt worthy information to share

The first SQE assessments will be no earlier than Autumn 2021. We continue to work towards this and at this stage, we do not expect the Covid-19 outbreak to affect our timeline. We will continue to monitor the situation carefully.

Finally, I found this article from the Law Society

Hopefully these articles could help however I will, as always, be on hand to chat through your situation and offer any advice/support that I can.
