Concentrating primarily on changes over the last 12 months, this in-person 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'. 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.

The course content is liable to change if there are any important new developments in this area of the law.
