If you are a qualified Lawyer and are interested in training to be an English Solicitor then you can study for the QLTS (Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme). This is a two part exam, which you can sit in London. Whilst some providers offer distance learning courses we are offering classes for Lawyers based in Madrid.
Why Study with us?
Our courses are lead by English Solicitors and will take place from our offices in the centre of Madrid. Our first course will take place between 4 February and 16 March, each Monday and Wednesday evening between 8.00pm to 9.30pm for a total of 18 hours with a price of €450, with further courses to be announced in the new year. This course will cover the first 4 academic subjects required for the QLTS whilst at the same time developing the legal skills necessary to sit the exam. Our courses in the new year will build on this with a view to providing a complete course in order to sit the exam should you wish in June 2014.
