Mastering Immigration Law Subscription Updates Nov & Dec 2020

Hello Subscribers! What a few months it has been with all the new rules now in action. Mark Symes and our expert team finished reading more than 500 pages from the 3 sets of new Immigration Rules published in recent months and have made updates to reflect the new rules in your MIL subscription. 

Modules 7 (PBS) and 11 (EU) are still being updating as you can imagine these two particular modules had significant changes. By mid February you will have the most up to date resource currently on the market. So much time and effort was put into producing these updates, we would like to thank Mark Symes and Agnete Gribkowski who have manged to get their heads around the new rules and produce such a great resource to our subscribers. 

We have scheduled many courses which look at the new rules and put them in context. You can view our range of courses here. Remember Subscribers receive 15% discount.
