The President of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, Suzanne Rice and Chief Executive, Alan Hunter welcomed solicitors Ashleigh Garcia and Sinead Marmion to Law Society House to mark their election as Chair and Secretary of the Law Society of Northern Ireland's Immigration Practitioners Group (IPG).

Ashleigh who works for HHD Solicitors in Belfast was recently elected Chair and Sinead who works in Tim McQuiod Solicitors was elected as the IPG's new Secretary.

Commenting the President of the Law Society, Suzanne Rice said:

"I wish to congratulate Ashleigh and Sinead on their election as Chair and Secretary of the Society's IPG and I look forward to working with them to highlight the issues of importance affecting immigration practitioners and their clients".

Speaking on behalf of the IPG, its new Chair, and Ashleigh Garcia said;

"In light of Brexit, the Immigration Practitioner’s Group must support practitioners to navigate the changing landscape of immigration law in Northern Ireland.  It is important that we continue to develop best practice, and strongly advocate for access to justice for those most vulnerable.  We should also begin to establish expertise in emerging areas of immigration, such as corporate and education, and reach out to our counter-parts in other jurisdictions to help us achieve that aim".
