Entry into the UK Legal Profession

There are two main routes to qualify as a lawyer in England and Wales. You can qualify as a solicitor or a barrister. Lawyer is a generic term that encompasses both sides of the legal profession. These separate branches of the profession are regulated by different regulators. Solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). Barristers are regulated by the Bar Standards Board (BSB). There are three stages to qualification for any aspiring lawyer: (i) degree (ii) vocational course and (iii) work-based learning.
