DT 1396 Update: Deportation

New Immigration Rules (HC 194) affecting deportation took effect on 9 July 2012.  These Rules seek to constrain how Article 8 of the 1950 European Convention on Human Rights may be relied upon by persons facing deportation; and will be a key focus of this session. Deportation continues to be a key activity for the UK Border Agency and its performance targets.  The sharp rise faced by immigration practitioners in their deportation caseload since May 2006 seems set, therefore, to continue.  That was compounded by the introduction (in part) in summer 2008 of provisions in the UK Borders Act 2007 introducing a new ‘automatic’ deportation regime and significant changes in the deportation and related appeals process, which continues to have a significant effect.  Join the experts for this popular update session.
