Seminars are presented by senior Refugee Legal solicitors, specialist legal practitioners, barristers and tribunal members, all of whom bring with them a high degree of knowledge, expertise and practical experience in their fields, and
- ‘Migration Maze’ Courses (two or four days) for legal professionals to develop or refresh knowledge of migration and refugee law, and
