QLTS - The Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme helps you become a solicitor of England and Wales if you are already a qualified lawyer in one of the recognised jurisdictions. The English legal profession is open to international lawyers seeking to qualify as a solicitor and it does not impose restrictions to admission on grounds of nationality or residence.
QLTS provides a route for lawyers from other recognised jurisdictions. Contact us to find out if you are in a recognised jurisdiction and are eligible. Your home jurisdiction must be recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and you must be a qualified lawyer as defined by the SRA. The governing body over the QLTS is the UK Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and only the SRA has the ability to determine who is eligible, the required abilities and knowledge a candidate must demonstrate, the passing scores, etc.
