Successful completion of this Certificate will enable solicitors who have qualified in Ireland to apply to be admitted on the Roll of Solicitors in England and Wales.
The aim of this course is to examine the conveyancing practice and procedure in England and Wales. The objective, on successful completion of an online assessment, is to provide practitioners with the ability to establish and transfer proprietary rights and interests in England and Wales as set out in the Solicitors Regulation Authority for England and Wales Legal Practice Course outcomes.
On completion of this course participants will be able to identify and perform the critical steps in a conveyancing transaction in England and Wales, determine how legal estates and interests differ between the two jurisdictions, draft and complete the appropriate documentation for a conveyancing transaction in England and Wales and understand the law on easements and covenants for title in England and Wales. Moreover, participants will be in a position to assess how the practice of conveyancing in England and Wales differs from the practice of conveyancing in Ireland and adapt their knowledge and skills to meet the needs of clients in both jurisdictions.
