This course was last updated in May 2017.

The purported incorporation of Article 8 into the Immigration Rules in July 2012 has caused considerable confusion for lawyers and judges and generated much ongoing litigation. This course reviews the old and new case law and looks at some of the available arguments when attempting to run a ‘traditional’ human rights case.
