Masterclass in Immigration Law

Posted by Mark Symes on 29 January 2012

David Jones, HJT Director and Garden Court barrister, (“fantastic advocacy skills and charming manner”: Chambers and Partners) presents HJT’s immigration law update on 7th February 2012 at 4pm at their Liverpool street training centre, focusing on recent issues arising from regular migration under the immigration rules. Numerous important decisions have been decided by the courts recently, addressing substantive law issues such as the burden of proof in general refusal cases, the role of the “best interests of the child” in immigration applications, and the plight of senior carers and domestic workers. Additionally David will use his expertise to address questions surrounding appeals and their consequences, such as the introduction of fees, determining when a decision of the Secretary of State to fail to make an appealable immigration decision when refusing to vary leave is “not in accordance with the law”, the binding effect of appellate findings on future consideration of entry clearance applications and the developing principles of public law and fairness on appeal. See here for details.
