Hi!

My name is Marco and I’m the guy behind PasstheQlts. As you would imagine, I graduated in Law in Italy and qualified as a solicitor in Italy and Spain. I was working in house for a retail company for the last few years in Italy, but then decided I needed a change of perspective, culture, opportunities and so on. And London was the answer to my internal struggle! I moved to London and now it’s time to set the next steps in my career. To be totally honest I knew that the only logical step, unless you are looking for a career change (yes, but what?), if you want to practice Law in the UK, is what this blog is about: to pass the QLTS Exam, the Qualified Transfer Scheme! Really, I am just a guy who has the goal to pass the QLTS Exam to build a professional career in Law in London. I will share my study plan with you, read all the possible guides, interview successful candidates and try to post everything online. Of course any help, question, comment or suggestion from you will be greatly appreciated!

Best of luck!

Cheers!

  1. Hi Marco,

    I stay in a non- EU country and was wondering what would be the books that would be available for QLTS.

    I saw your list and wanted to know if those books covered all the Day 1 outcomes.

    how can i reach out to you ? to have a chat or maybe email exchange ?

    • Hi Saurabh!
      Thanks for your comment, please keep posting comments here or on other posts so that it will benefit anyone else!
      That is the spirit of Pass the Qlts.
      I am still reviewing the books but from what I can see they cover everything needed for the MCT part of the QLTS.
      I will add any other book to the list in due course, if need be.
      Remember that you can get the books from Amazon or directly from Oxford University Press here, sent to most countries for a reasonable fee.
      Cheers

  2. Hi Marco,
    I am an Italian qualified lawyer with several years of practice (let’s say 20) under my belt. As you know, the legal profession in Italy has been going through a very tough crisis for a very long time and, worse than that, it’s really hard, if not impossible, to see daylight. I am, therefore, seriously considering the idea of undertaking the QLTS preparation in the hope that, as a dual-qualified lawyer, I will be able to work in an international environment and, hopefully, get far away from here. That said, I want first of all congratulate you on your very useful website. Secondly, I would like to know if there is a deadline to meet to take the OSCE once passing the MCT. What happens if I failed the OSCE? Should I take the MTC again? Thanks for your time.

    • Hi Vincenzo
      thanks for your comment and welcome on board!
      I know exactly your situation, and even though we may have different backgrounds we both came to the same conclusion.
      I can’t say you are coming to the right decision, as there’s no right or wrong when it comes to life changes, but what I can say is that at least you have a job market over here (ie London). Please get in touch if I can help you, I’ll be happy to!
      To answer your question, recently (May 2015) the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) approved a series amendments to the QLTS exam.
      In short, before the amendment you could sit the exam for a maximum number of times and you had to complete it within a 5 years period.
      Now those limits have been removed, so you can sit the MCT and your result will be “banked” untill you have passed the OSCE.
      Good luck with everything and do take care!

  3. hi!!
    I am taking my MCT soon..just a quick question where do I start from ?? just so confused as to which books / courses to follow..Have you finished ur exams or are u still doing it ??how many hours in a day you need to study??
    please help

  4. I have just started on this process. I am an american attorney, with about 20 years of practice. I have moved to the UK due to my husband’s job and would like to try to get licensed here so I can continue to work in law. I was very excited to find your website. In my web searching I wanted to let you know that the OUP (concentrate books) website has a lot of on-line resources including a test bank (while I stress these are NOT prep tests for the MCT they may be able to help make sure the person is grasping the material)
