With the help of a trusty bottle of wine I’ve updated the online courses on Article 8, the Immigration Act and the Immigration Rules (now renamed and worth 2 CPD) and on the Immigration Act 2014 (2 CPD). I have also updated the ebook on the Immigration Act 2014. The updates add commentary and analysis on the statutory human rights considerations in the new Part 5A of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 commenced as of 28 July 2014, issues around commencement and the interaction of the newly amended Immigration Rules with the statutory considerations (a very interesting topic in fact). Enjoy.

  1. The most interesting question for me is the interaction between the statutory presumptions and Section 55 (which it is emphasised later in the act still applies). Is private life established while an applicant is in the UK unlawfully still to be given little weight when said applicant is a child (and likely had no choice at all about being here)?
