December Special

5th December 2016

 

Festive greetings from 36 Immigration!

Since the success of our 26 October event on hostile environments we've been busy planning for 2017. 

News

Our team of barristers is expanding. Immigration specialist Ubah Dirie recently started as a probationary tenant at the 36 Group, having completed her training at Garden Court. Internal recruit Richard O'Dair now combines immigration with his accomplished employment law practice. 

With significant changes to the EEA Regulations, appeal rights, asylum support and Article 8 upon us, we're planning more training events to keep pace with the latest developments. We value your feedback - and by popular demand we'll be putting on more in-depth, topical sessions. 

In other news, on 21 November, Ben Amunwa represented one of nine claimants in R (Medical Justice and others) v SSHD instructed by Duncan Lewis. As featured in the Guardian, the case challenged the new, restrictive definition of torture that the Home Office has been using to justify immigration detention. Mr Justice Ousely suspended part of the Home Office's new policy pending trial, granted permission for judicial review and scheduled a further hearing for March 2017.

UK Supreme Court rules on Article 8 in deportation appeals

by Ben Amunwa

Whether deportation of a “foreign criminal” infringes a person’s right to family and private life in the UK cannot be assessed only through the prism of the Immigration Rules. However, Judges must give considerable weight to the Rules, according to the Supreme Court cases of Ali and Makhlouf.

Ordinary family ties won’t stop deportation of “foreign criminals”, finds Court of Appeal

by Richard O'Dair

The Court of Appeal has asserted the relevance of the Immigration Rules in Article 8 appeals against deportation orders, taking a fine tooth-comb to Tribunal decisions that don’t attach sufficient weight to the Rules.

 

With very best wishes as 2016 draws to a close,
