Delegate reports "a very positive experience":
Laura Mitchell, Qualified Lawyer in Scotland
... [the tutors] had ideas and tips that I would have not thought of myself, and made themselves available daily by email to answer all of my questions... on both the format and substance of the assessments.
I would like to say what an absolute pleasure it has been to deal with your organization. Every question is answered promptly, the materials provided are easy to follow and the program overall is excellent. Thank you as this is the best money I've spent in a very long time.
Dante Benedettini, Kaydon Corporation, Sumter, SC
Just wanted to let you know that I started last month with Intelsat as their GC for Europe and Middle East, and will be relocating to London. I wanted to share this with you since it was taking and passing the Solicitors' exams that made this possible. My regards to Deborah, Nathan and everyone else.
Armando. T., Intelstat, London, England
I would like to thank all of you for making this possible in my life. You have been great to work with and I hope to be a strong referral source. Materials were right-on to help me pass all three parts on the first attempt. Thank you!
Eric S. Ratliff, Professor of Law
I am Board Certified in Antitrust and Trade Regulation Law by the Florida Bar. Over the past several years, the counseling requirements of my clientele have become increasingly global. Specifically, my clients are expanding into EU markets and the legal counseling they require is increasingly more in the nature of competition advice concerning the establishment of distribution channels. This changing focus of my practice was the primary impetus for my sitting for the English Solicitor Bar exam. There are many British companies in Florida, so mutually beneficial networking opportunities are abundant. By qualifying as an English Solicitor, I was able to enhance my ability to service my clients in Competition Law matters and have now successfully built a very lucrative two-way network of Solicitors.
Thank you most sincerely for helping me accomplish these objectives.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm still in shock. Your course is so amazing, that even I was able to pass with your incredible study materials.

The online training system makes preparation far easier. It truly helps you to identify the most relevant information needed for the exam, and the areas where you are most likely to be tested.
Anibal Sabater, Esq.,
Fulbright & Jaworski LLP
I found the materials to be essential in preparing for the exams. The combination of clear and concise manuals, lectures, practice exams, and other online material, all were an excellent way to efficiently absorb the information needed to pass the exams. I recommend QLTS Advantage’s distance learning program without hesitation to anyone who is interested succeeding on the Qualified Lawyers’ Transfer Scheme.
My primary reason for taking the QLTS exam is that my practice often involves commercial finance transactions that include obligors (i.e. borrowers or guarantors) that are located in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, etc. I deal with solicitors in connection with obtaining and enforcing charges on assets, guaranties and other matters in these jurisdictions.

Could I just say how impressed I am with the level of student support that comes with signing up to the online MCT...Posted by Noelene Harding on Wednesday, November 11, 2015
Before the exam I was really stressed about the volume of material. Then I signed up with QLTS Advantage; it gave me much needed direction and clarity, and was of great assistance in passing the exam. Thanks!

QLTS leads to exotic adventure:
Steve Reddy, Esq., Escravos, Nigeria
I am in Warri and Escravos, Nigeria on a huge 6 billion dollar oil and gas project. As a Lawyer and Solicitor I am doing contracts and subcontracts, compliance issues, and working with local community leaders. What a blast... dangerous at times - we have armed guards with us all the time, 25 foot crocs around the site, Malaria, and lots of other things. The people are very nice, hard working, educated, want to work, are social, and the project is doing a huge amount of good for the local and Delta State communities... I am glad I did the QLTS as it has helped me get this job and have the credibility and credentials to succeed in it with such diverse communities.
Qualifying as an English Solicitor is the best route, in my opinion, for an associate to gain instant recognition from upper and middle management. Taking this exam directly impacts your annual review, no doubt about it!
Alain Villeneuve, Associate, Vedder Price Kaufman & Kammholz
Thank you, Anthony!
Stacey Farmer, Esq.,
I attribute my success to the fantastic prep materials your organization made available ... the web materials were a valuable resource. I went through each question methodically, therefore "locking" in the areas where questions were likely to arise (and they certainly did).
"Studying for the Solicitor’s exam not only conferred the obvious benefit of learning the law of England and Wales, but also lent new depth to my U.S. practice, even after 25 years of practice. The Revision Day in London was particularly helpful, as was the access to Lexis. QLTS Advantage does a good job of advising and reminding of changes in the law that will be covered on the exams, and of facilitating multi-media study. I found the online content particularly convenient, especially the lectures that I loaded onto my phone and listened to whenever I had a few minutes."
Laura E. Jordan, Esq. Principal, The Capital Law Firm, PLLC, Washington D.C.
Thanks for your support in preparing for last week's test. There were no surprises, given the depth of the outlines, reinforcement questions and mock review. The audio for Civil Litigation was especially valuable and clear. Additionally, in the context of distance learning, it was great to have my e-mailed questions answered promptly and thoroughly.
Gary T. Johnson, Partner, Jones Day
I am so delighted with the support and tutoring I received from QLTS Advantage. With excellent materials and diligence on my part, I was able to pass on the first sitting with flying colors! The recordings were clear, held my interest, and reinforced the very complete foundation modules. I highly recommend your course as a complete source for preparation for those wanting to qualifying as Solicitors in England & Wales.
Laura A. Peter, San Francisco, CA
QLTS Advantage was crucial for my successful completion of the assessments, both through their explanation of the process and for the study materials, which allowed me to sit for the test fully prepared. QLTS Advantage really "goes to bat" for the candidates.
Charles W. Cookson, Brazil
The convenience of offering interested lawyers from our city (and indeed from the Midwest) the opportunity to take this important examination in Chicago is truly a valuable service. Qualifying as a solicitor may provide a useful credential and knowledge base for lawyers wishing to develop practices in the UK or with clients located there.
Terrence M. Murphy, Executive Director, Chicago Bar Association
Surveys tell us ... over the next two decades the demand for international law specialists will be among the highest for all legal professionals. In a climate of ever advancing changes in international law, the lawyer who lacks a firm understanding of the international environment risks irrelevancy.
