Programme

NZAMI Workshop: Written Advocacy for Immigration Practitioners

This Workshop will provide 7 hours towards your CPD

Our CPD team has long been asked for events that go beyond the typical seminar format. Building on their successful Risk Management workshop, Matt Gibbons and Peter Moses have now developed a programme that assists experienced and newly qualified immigration practitioners improving a key skill: written advocacy!

This workshop is tailored specifically for those working in the immigration industry and it introduces key principles of good writing for advocates. It then practises how these fundamental principles can be applied in the typical documents encountered in immigration advice and advocacy:

  • emails
  • advice and reporting letters to clients
  • covering letters and PPI responses
  • Tribunal submissions
  • statements or statutory declarations prepared for clients.

This will be an interactive full day workshop. Groupwork and practical exercises are key to learning this type of skill, and the workshop is therefore limited to 12 participants.

Between them Peter and Matt can claim 50 years of advocacy experience, both in legal practice and as a licensed immigration adviser. They have designed the programme to be engaging and interesting. They even say it will be fun!

Closing date for registration and ordering DVD Pack is 14 February 2020

NZAMI Cancellation Policy

The NZAMI retains the right to cancel any event, CPD or Conference.  If an event is cancelled the Association will immediately inform registered participants and issue either a refund or credit note.

 

NZAMI Refund Policy

Due to the NZAMI CPD capacity restrictions, unfulfilled registrations take up valuable places in NZAMI CPD events.

Reimbursement or the issuance of credit notes for those who fail to attend is entirely at the discretion of the NZAMI and will only be considered IF the NZAMI office is advised at least 7 business days prior to the event they cannot attend.

Orders cannot be changed from 'attending' a seminar to the MP4 or livestream of said seminar without at least 7 business days notice directly to NZAMI prior to the Seminar date.  The fee difference will also need to be paid.

Conference registrations will require 3 weeks notice, ie 15 business days notice, if you wish to change or cancel your booking.  Due to printing, catering and deadlines associated with a large and complex event, refunds will not be provided for last minute changes or cancelations to bookings.
