The ILFM is always focused on the wellbeing of our staff team, our members, students and delegates, this is our absolute priority.

Given the ongoing national situation and watching closely the government advice, we have taken some difficult decisions.

We are aware that many may be concerned by the continued spread of the virus. All members, delegates, students etc. can be reassured that we are taking this seriously and closely following the continued advice from UK Government Action PlanPublic Health England.

All ILFM information and notices with regard to COVID19 (Coronavirus) will appear on this page - This page will be updated as the information & advice changes.

We have made the decision to postpone all our face-to-face trainings until the end of 2020.  We will continually review the fast changing situation as the weeks go on and move the date forward if safe and possible. 

We will provide a FREE transfer to anyone booked into our trainings to an ILFMOnline Training.

We are planning to run November 2020 exam sittings.  We will be considering Government advice and will make decisions nearer the time. 

The entire team will be working harder than ever to ensure you get all the help, support and resources you need to make sure that the Nov 2020 exams are successful for you.  We will be considering online options for exams over the summer.

ILFM Staff Team

As much of the legal sector is temporarily on pause and we all follow important government advice.   Like many other businesses and legal firms, who work within our sector, we have decided to take advantage of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.  The ILFM will therefore be operating with a reduced team for the next few months. 

Some of our team are on Furlough Leave;  however we will be continuing with a reduced office team. Throughout this period, we will always have a very able team remaining to support you.  

When you need to get in touch, please email or call as you normally would, our team will be pleased to help you.
