An intensive two day workshop for lawyers entering the Australian migration advice space presented by Christopher Levingston, Accredited Specialist Immigration Lawyer with 30 years experience.

Legal Training Australia (LTA) has designed a two day workshop for legal practitioners who are interested in finding out as much as they can about the practice of immigration law in Australia.

The workshop is conducted by one of Australia's leading Immigration Specialists who brings to the course and its content unique insights in strategic thinking and dynamic problem solving.

Our Lecturer is Christopher Levingston who has been an Accredited Specialist since 1995 and has practised in this challenging and dynamic legal environment since 1988. He brings to the workshop a wealth of practical experience that translates into opportunities to develop and drive your practice in this very important area of the Law.

In addition, LTA is the only provider who gives ongoing support and mentoring on technical and legal questions as they arise in the conduct of your practice.
