Only this morning I was making extensive use of the websites of both the First Tier and Upper Tribunal Immigration and Asylum Chambers. I’ve returned to chambers only to find that they have now seemingly vanished into thin air, with nothing but a redirect to a new looking Ministry of Justice website. I HOPE that this is because the IAC sites are temporarily down but suspect not. The new MOJ site has a very limited amount of the information of the old sites. Just enough to make one suspect that it serves as a replacement…

Anyone with any news? Can anyone find the practice directions or the case law sections?

UPDATE: the reported case law can be found here and a few basic bits and bobs here. Everything else remains MIA. Looks like the change is permanent. Hopefully at least some of the critical information like practice directions will reappear at some point soon somehow.
