Professor Thom Brooks was invited to address the major annual Legal Ed Con 2023 in London last week.
Brooks was Dean from 2016 and 2021. He spoke on a panel about the introduction of the Solicitors Qualifying Exam, launched by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and their director of education and training spoke on the panel, too. Professor Brooks raised concerns about the SQE's delivery on access, costs and quality. The event was covered in detail by Legal Cheek.
