DT 1888 Immigration and Asylum Judicial Review in the Upper Tribunal

Tuesday 28 Jan 2020, 17:30, London
Tutors: Tim Buley QC and Ben Fulbrook, Landmark Chambers

The Upper Tribunal has had a judicial review jurisdiction since its creation. "Fresh claim" judicial reviews have been required to be brought in the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) (UTIAC) since late 2011, and age dispute judicial review claims are now also routinely dealt with by the UTIAC. Since November 2013, the majority of all immigration related judicial reviews are required to be heard in the Upper Tribunal. This session will consider practice and procedure on judicial review in the UTIAC, including the transfer process, what claims should or should not be brought in UTIAC, and what kind of arguments can be made for claimants in such cases, as well as addressing issues on the cutting edge of legal developments in this area. It will also provide practical insights into tactics and presentation of claims to maximise chances of success. 

The tutors are barristers at Landmark Chambers specialising in public law an immigration, who have been involved with many significant developments in immigration judicial review, and with very extensive experience of bringing successful judicial review claims against the Home Office.
