Choosing the right pathway for you
There are two pathways into SFE membership - as a practising lawyer (professional pathway) or as a trainee lawyer (student pathway).
NB: If you have recently qualified and are new to older client law, we recommend that you join at the student member level and complete the SFE student programme, before upgrading to associate membership.
NB: Membership to SFE is purely for individuals. We don’t offer firm memberships.
We expect all our members to move through SFE’s membership levels to become SFE accredited. This is because we want to ensure all our members are able to advise clients to the very highest of standards before recommending them to the public. As such, we only showcase our accredited members to the public.
