Don't be daunted by legislation or appeal hearings. This three-day course is ideal for those who want to learn how to find and use social security law (Day 1) and also for those who wish to take those skills further and develop their abilities to research, prepare and argue their cases at appeal, concluding with a mock tribunal session (Days 2 and 3). Day 1 can be booked as a stand-alone course if required. To attend days 2 and 3 you must attend day 1.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

What have previous delegates said about our social security law courses?
"Introduction to social security law and appeal representation was excellent, both in the planning and the delivery, and also very enjoyable. I believe the course would be of great interest to claimants, appellants, their advisers and representatives, but also to anyone who might have to prepare or adjudicate upon an appeal."
