Exam Crash Course Session – Disputes: Evidence and Trial

7 December 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm




Understand the fundamentals of this area of the blackletter law in this Exam Crash Course Session. This is your chance to make sure that you fully grasp this part of the SQE syllabus and have the confidence to answer SQE1-style MCQs on this topic.  Use this Session to tick off this topic before the exam, so you are ready to smash any MCQ that comes your way.

We will be covering the following areas of the SQE1 syllabus:

  • Evidence:
    • Relevance, hearsay and admissibility
    • The burden and standard of proof
    • Expert evidence:
      • Opinion evidence
      • Duties of experts
  • Witness evidence:
    • Witness statements
    • Affidavit
  • Trial:
    • Summoning witnesses
    • Preparations for trial:
      • Purpose of pre-trial checklists (listing questionnaires) and hearings
      • Purpose of trial bundles
  • Trial procedure including modes of address, court room etiquette and the difference between leading and non-leading questions
  • The nature and effect of judgment

We will start by going over and discussing the SQE1 syllabus for this topic, and what you actually need to know for the exam.

Then we will go over the underlying blackletter law rules, covering what is necessary to answer any SQE1 MCQs. You can ask any questions you like on this topic throughout the Session.

We will then finish by tackling an SQE1-style MCQ based on what we have covered in this Session. This will allow you to confirm and strengthen your understanding of the law we have covered in the Session and develop your MCQ-answering technique, which is critical to passing the exam.

Give yourself the best chance of smashing the SQE. Tick off this part of the SQE1 syllabus and join us!
