About this course

Prior to the Court of Appeal’s 29 June 2023 judgment, thousands of individuals seeking asylum in the UK received notices of intent informing them that their claims may be considered inadmissible and that they may be removed to Rwanda. It has been reported that over 18,000 of these individuals have since had their asylum claims admitted for consideration in the UK, whilst 5,000 have not. No-one has been removed to Rwanda as of yet, and the feasibility of future removals remains uncertain.

Meanwhile, those issued with notices of intent find themselves in a state of indefinite uncertainty, with some having endured this limbo for months or years already.

This webinar takes a deep dive into the rules and guidance on inadmissibility, offering insights into potential grounds for challenge. We consider the types of evidence that will be necessary and the strategies legal representatives may be able to employ to discontinue inadmissibility action and facilitate their clients’ entry into the asylum system.


Jed Pennington is a public law and human rights specialist at Wilson Solicitors, with a particular focus on judicial reviews and civil actions on behalf of people who experience unlawful treatment in the immigration system. He was involved in the previous round of litigation challenging the Rwanda policy and is acting in judicial review challenges to delays in the inadmissibility process.

Detailed but not overwhelming. The examples where good and illustrated complex parts well. The quiz at the end was very good.
