IN ASSOCIATION WITH
QLTT

The opportunities to work abroad have never been greater. The rapidly growing European Union and the globalisation of law firms means opportunities are opening up for lawyers to practice law in other parts of the world.

UK based law firms are keen to get into business with India. The global legal market is estimated to be worth 240 billion. Every year, solicitors earn more of their income from abroad. ALSR has therefore made it possible, through its association with OXILP, for Indian lawyers to sit the QLTT in their home country and get enrolled as a solicitor in England and Wales. The QLTT (Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test) is limited to the professional knowledge of the applicant, made by the competent authorities of the host member state with the aim of assessing the ability of the applicant to pursue a regulated profession in England and Wales.

A Qualified Lawyer is  one who has a valid license for two years or more to practice law in India. The Transfer Test gives the Qualified Lawyer a platform to achieve dual qualification i.e. a qualified lawyer in their home country and a Qualified Lawyer in United Kingdom and Wales with a valid license to practice as a Solicitor.

The test is operated within the statutory framework provided by the European Union Directive and is fully accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority of England and Wales.

The test compromises of four Heads, namely:

HEAD I: Property

Three (3) hour written examination offered in two parts: Part A which covers Conveyancing and Part B covering Wills, Probate and Administration. Candidates are expected to answer the questions in both the parts and an equal number of marks are allocated in both parts.

HEAD II: Litigation

Three (3) hour written examination offered in two parts, i.e. civil and criminal. Candidates are expected to answer both parts. Candidates are tested on evidence and procedure and no less than 15 % of the marks for the criminal part are attributable to evidence issues.

HEAD III: Professional Conduct and Accounts

Three (3) hour written examination offered in two parts i.e. Accounts (representing 40% of the marks) and Financial Services, Money Laundering and Professional Conduct (representing 60% of the marks). At least 15% of the total available marks will be attributable to Financial Services.

HEAD IV: Principles of Common Law

Oral Examination lasting for 30-40 minutes focusing on a topic or topics selected in advance and notified to the candidate.
This test examines the candidates understanding of the principles of the common law and linguistic competence.
