Overview

QLTS - The Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme helps you become a Solicitor of England and Wales if you are already a qualified lawyer in another Country.

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 (SRA) and you must be a qualified lawyer.

We know that busy lawyers have their job/clients to take care of. That’s why all our course content is focused and straight to the point, but covers everything you need to know to test and pass QLTS. British legal centre courses let you to study in your preferred environment, at your own pace, and at the most suitable and convenient time for you – whether at home or office, in the UK or elsewhere.

Our materials are suitable for candidates from different backgrounds and varying levels of legal knowledge and experience in English law. You may be qualified in a common law, or civil law jurisdiction, have little or extensive legal experience, English may be your first or second language, and you may be working full-time or part-time – whatever your circumstances are, you can be sure of expert support, quality training and the flexibility to tailor your training requirements so that you can prepare for and succeed at passing the QLTS assessments on your own terms. We will be happy to give you free advice if you contact us on our Internationa Skype number: +44 208 144 6440
