The Immigration and Asylum Law Accreditation covers all types of immigration and asylum law work.
Members will have shown, to the satisfaction of the Law Society, that they have and will maintain a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of immigration and asylum law, be that in private practice or working for an organisation regulated by the Office for the Immigration Services Commissioner.
