Judicial Review for Immigration Lawyers (Advanced)

CPD Points: 3

Length of course: 3 hours

About this course

This course was published in October 2023.

In recent years, judicial review – the primary mechanism for challenging the lawfulness of decisions made by public bodies – has been of ever increasing importance to immigration practitioners. This has been due to restrictions on or outright removal of statutory appeal rights, and the expansion of hostile environment policies and powers affecting people subject to immigration control.

In this in-depth and practical course, we will cover the key resources for practitioners involved in judicial review proceedings; pre-action matters; the pervasive topics including professional duties, evidence, the grounds for judicial review and remedies; along with hearings and appeals.

The course is only available to paying members of Free Movement. If you are not already a member, you can join here and access not just this course but all of our courses.
