Irwin Mitchell Night School – Autumn 2023: An Introduction to Welfare Benefits, and Support During the Cost of Living Crisis

One thing that brings all legal specialists together is the passion and will to help people access the support they need. But, sometimes it’s not as accessible as we’d like. That’s why, we created the Irwin Mitchell Night School.

The Irwin Mitchell Night School is a free and informative webinar series that offers a friendly and helpful introduction to the legal world.

Our speakers will be on hand to help you with any questions you may have along the way. They’re here to help you get the most out of the course, and feel empowered as a result.

If you have any queries, please call Laura Daly on +44(0)121 7569 884 or email
