DATES: 16-19 and 23-24 August 2010 VENUE: University House, ANU COST: Non-members $3,435.00 (incl GST), Members $3,105.00 (incl GST) ENQUIRIES: Rosemary Dupont (02) 6282 0234 / 0416 052 734 firstname.lastname@example.org 10-05350/1 Australian National University Migration Law Program Shared experience: Marianne Dickie, Sub Dean of the ANU Migration Law Program (left) with graduate Patricia Elaine Sealy (right), who gained the qualification to assist refugees. Patricia Sealy is a Sister (a Catholic nun) who is 77 years old and has worked with refugees since graduating. Migration to Australia is a subject that can inspire media headlines, stir public interest and stimulate community debate. WHILE almost everyone has an opinion about how many migrants are appropriate, or how 'illegal immigrants' should be handled, few really under- stand the complexity of Aust- ralian Migration law. Those who do are likely to have studied the Graduate Cer- tificate in Australian Migration Law and Practice at the Aust- ralian National University (ANU) College of Law Legal Workshop. Delivered either online or in 'blended' mode which includes face-to-face weekend teaching as well as online activities, the graduate certificate comprises four courses, each of eight weeks duration. Blended classes are offered in the ACT, Sydney and Mel- bourne (subject to sufficient enrolments). By law, only registered Migration Agents can offer immigration assistance, and the only path to registration of new Migration Agents is the graduate certificate in Aust- ralian Migration Law and Practice. It's not surprising that the Migration Act specifies the qualifications that a Migration Agent must hold. Migration legislation changes so frequently and comprehen- sively, that only those with a keen understanding of how to apply current law can provide appropriate advice. The ANU Graduate Certifi- cate in Australian Migration Law and Practice equips those without a legal background (as well as many lawyers) to under- stand the context of migration regulation, to identify the multi- tude of Australian visas, to understand procedures for visa compliance, cancellation and review, and to develop the practical skills to deliver pro- fessional and effective migration advice. Those who choose this gradu- ate certificate at the ANU tend to be older professionals look- ing for a career change, or seeking to improve their know- ledge of migration law. The ANU is currently accept- ing enrolments for the winter session which commences on July 19. Blended classes will be held at the ANU campus in late July and mid August. In the ACT, students have the additional opportunity of prac- tical experience during the program, through a mentored outreach program at the Migrant and Refugee Settle- ment Services (MARSS) of the ACT Inc.
