OLQE 2019: Paul Kent Legal Training OLQE 2019 Course

Flexibility, expertise, exam practice, and total commitment to clients

 

PAUL KENT LEGAL TRAINING OLQE 2019 COURSE

Paul Kent Legal Training is pleased to announce its OLQE 2019 Course.

Flexibility is a key feature of the services offered by Paul Kent Legal Training. This is very important for busy lawyers, who must find time to study while maintaining a busy workload.

For the OLQE 2019 Course, we have increased our already flexible programme by:

  • adding to the number and variety of study options, and
  • minimising the rigidity of the full in-house package, while maintaining the possibility of in-house study, subject to availability.

STUDY OPTIONS

Choose the option that best suits your requirements and your schedule.

  • 21 hours of online interactive tutorials in Head I (Conveyancing) & Head VI (Hong Kong Constitutional Law), and
  • 10 hours of online interactive sessions in Head I and Head VI (face to face revision classes may be available, subject to early registration)

The tutorials focus on how to APPLY law to identify legal issues and to resolve the kinds of legal problems that arise in practice, and which have been, or which may be, tested in the examination.

Tuition combines reinforcement of knowledge and tips and techniques for answering questions in the exam.
