LSSA Immigration and Refugee Committee meets with SAQA

April 1st, 2012

By Barbara Whittle

In February, members of the LSSA’s Immigration and Refugee Law Committee met representatives from the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) to discuss –

  • training as part of the anticipated continuing professional development (CPD) programme and possible accreditation for such training;
  • the interface between the organised legal profession and SAQA on the evaluation of qualifications for immigration purposes and the streamlining of the process; and
  • ideas regarding further professional accreditation in immigration, nationality and refugee law as a specialist field of practice.
