The chair of the Junior Lawyers Division, Amy Clowrey, has written to Bob Neill MP, chair of the Justice Committee, requesting an inquiry into the Legal Services Board’s decision to approve the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s application for the introduction of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE).

We are concerned that the SQE proposals (if implemented) would:

  • be contrary to the public interest
  • not be in the interest of consumers
  • result in lower professional standards

We are asking the Justice Committee to hold an evidence session or short inquiry into the Legal Services Board’s approval of the SQE to date before the next stage of the SQE application process.
