You don’t have a qualifying law degree for England and Wales so you can’t declare that. However, you may find that firms don’t think it is necessary for you to complete the GDL - even in the old qualification system you would have had exemptions for most of the GDL modules, and so wouldn’t have had to do a full course, just the missing modules. Therefore you may find firms are willing to offer you a TC on the basis that you don’t need to do the GDL. You should clarify with each firm you want to apply to about this.Hi @Jessica Booker I graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Law degree from university in Ireland. I have taken all core subjects for an English qualifying law degree with the exception of Equity & Trusts. Do you know if I would be able to skip the PGDL even if firms require it and start with the SQE instead? I understand that Equity & Trusts is examined at SQE1 so it would seem futile and time consuming to take the subject as part of the PGDL and again in the SQE. Would it be ok to proceed with TC applications on the basis that I have a qualifying law degree?
