DT 1800 Sponsor Licence Law Conference

Thursday 11 Apr 2019, 10.00, London
Tutors: Chairs: Nichola Carter, Carter Thomas. Joe Middleton, Doughty Street Chambers

Last year’s successful inaugural Sponsor Licence Law Conference provided a space for immigration lawyers across the UK to share experiences and tips on dealing with this complex area of law. The White Paper on the UK’s future immigration system, published in December 2018, indicates that sponsorship will continue to play a central role in the post-Brexit immigration system. This year’s conference will therefore include a detailed examination of the current system of sponsorship for businesses, primarily relating to Tier 2 (General and ICT) and Tier 5, and a look at what the future may hold. The speakers will provide highly practical insight and tips from their extensive experience and the day will provide a unique opportunity for those who practice in this area to share their experience and expertise.
