Annual Immigration Seminar 2019 - Birmingham

The Immigration Group at No5 presents another full programme for their third Annual Immigration Seminar.

All the speakers presenting at the seminar have chosen to speak on topical and interesting subjects – some of which have been inspired by last year’s delegate feedback.

Attendees will come away from the day with increased knowledge of issues that arise on a daily basis in their practices, and with more detailed knowledge of unusual topics that have been in the press recently.

We hope you can make it!
