I hav never heard of such an exemption. What gave you this idea? On what basis are you in the UK?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I came here on student visa, did my masters in law. Currently I am on post study visa. From Feb, I am registered as a solicitor with SRA.
Expert:  Senior Partner replied 5 years ago.
Ok well you need to switch to another category such as sponsored tier 2 i.e. get a sponsored job offer or tier 1 as an entrepreneur but there is no special treatment that I am aware of for solicitors. Presumably you had a training contract - will your employers not sponsor you ?
