Learn Live 5 UpdateInformation
Accreditation Information
SRA Competency B


Concentrating primarily on changes over the last 12 months, this live broadcast is ideal for the busy conveyancer; it is very practical and relevant to your day-to-day practice.

Some of the changes are small and could easily 'sneak up on you'. Others can be more significant for the way you carry out your professional responsibilities.

As a busy conveyancer you need to keep up to date with changes in practice as well as changes in the law.
