6 December 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm




A live MCQ Session where we go over together unseen SQE1-style MCQs on alternative dispute resolution and starting proceedings in civil litigation. You will have a go at each MCQ, and then we will go over it together, discussing what the best answer is and the underlying blackletter law rule.

    • Service of a claim form within the jurisdiction
