Immigration Law

As the rules and policy on UK immigration grow more and more complex, it’s getting harder and harder to stay up to speed on the latest changes (especially when one source seems to contradict another).

LexisPSL Immigration gives you an authoritative and current view in a few minutes, with direct links to the relevant Immigration Rules, Home Office guidance, legislation and case law to back it up.

Our clear, concise practice notes summarise the key points, flag up any conflicts and highlight practical tips and common pitfalls. And they’re written in business-like language, which you can easily share with your clients. Our news and cases teams keep you on top of latest developments. Plus, our immigration category-specific suites of questionnaires, document checklists and template letters make it easy for you to draft the client materials you need, in less time.

So you can spend less time drafting and researching– and be confident you’re giving your clients the most accurate, current advice.
