Accreditation Information
SRA Competency B


Concentrating on changes over the last 12 months, this seminar 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'.

As a busy conveyancer you need to keep up-to-date with changes in practice as well as changes in the law. Take a day out to pick up the latest news on other practical matters; the good news as well as the bad news.
