Course Overview

Our Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test (QLTT) Preparation Course provides online access for the modern busy lawyer. Our experienced tutors are here to provide you with the best advice and training on your QLTT journey.

Ireland will soon be the only English speaking country within the European Union. Many EU qualified lawyers now wish to become Irish qualified in order to fill the gap created by the UK’s departure from the EU.

If you are a national of a Member State of the European Union and are qualified to practise as a lawyer in your home Member State, you may be able to register as a foreign qualified solicitor under the Establishment Directive (98/5/EC).

The Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test (QLTT) therefore is a fast-track route for qualification as a solicitor in Ireland for international lawyers. The programme is administered by the Law Society of Ireland.

Assessments/Examinations

QLTT Assessment

The QLTT assessments comprise of six papers and one oral examination in Professional Conduct. (Depending on their home qualification, certain applicants may have exemptions from all or some of these subjects). The purpose of the assessments is to ensure that all candidates who qualify as solicitors have the knowledge, skills, and ability necessary to perform their role competently and ethically.

City Colleges recognises that those who come on our QLTT Preparatory Course will already be qualified lawyers in other jurisdictions. We have therefore created an executive online offering of classes for the modern busy lawyer, coupled with subject-specific manuals to ensure your success in these examinations – however many subjects you need to sit.

 

The Test

This examination is offered by the Law Society twice every year usually in June/July and October/November. Each examination paper may comprise problem or essay-type questions or a combination of both. The pass mark for each examination is 50%. Every candidate for the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test must first obtain a Certificate of Eligibility from the Education Committee to sit the Test. The Education Committee will also determine on receipt of the appropriate application form and documentation, what subject or subjects the applicant is required to take.
