QWE Review & Confirm

Can’t get your QWE confirmed by past or present employers?

Our ‘Review and Confirm QWE’ Service is here to help.

Access Law Clinic works with experienced solicitors to provide confirmation of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) for aspiring solicitors on the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) route to qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales.

With the introduction of this new pathway there is no longer a requirement for a formal period of recognised training known as a ‘training contract’ to be completed prior to qualification as competence is assessed by the SQE assessments. There is also no requirement for the QWE to take place at an organisation that is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

The SQE has therefore introduced greater flexibility and opportunity to gain QWE however the SRA does require that this QWE is confirmed by a solicitor or compliance officer for legal practice (COLP). Access Law Clinic works with experienced solicitors to assist in providing confirmation of its completion in instanced where either:

  • The supervisor or other person at the placement is unable to sign off confirmation of the QWE for the aspiring solicitor or
  • The organisation chooses to outsource the QWE sign off to a confirmation service.

Review and Confirm Service explained

Access Law Clinic works with individuals, firms and organisations with the QWE Review & Confirm Service. Our Solicitors review the placement for the relevant time period of QWE applied for against the competences the SRA require to be developed to assess whether the placement meets the criteria required.  This applies to both historical and existing placements.

Our fee for the QWE Review Service is £475. Each approval is assessed on its own merits and in line with the specified SRA guidance and procedures.
