Info Service

ILPA's Information Service provides information of interest in immigration, asylum and nationality law, policy and practice, and is designed for non-lawyers (although many lawyers also use the information).  It is supported by funding from the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, with additional support in respect of information sheets relating to refugee children from the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund.  We provide:

  • Immigration updates on recent developments
  • Information sheets with detailed information on specific issues (two pages in length)
  • Seminars and presentations to NGOs and community organisations. See the links at the top left of this page for papers and notes prepared for previous workshops.

Updates and Information Sheets are sent out by email, as well as published here, and subscription is free.  You are welcome to copy or disseminate them.  Click here to Subscribe to the Information Service.

If you would like ILPA to provide a presentation or seminar, please contact the office by email to check capacity:

The Immigration Act 2016: Information Sheets

ILPA has prepared a series of Information Sheets on the Immigration Act 2016

These have been placed together on a separate page for ease of reference at: (or use the navigation links at the top left of this page.

There are 15 information sheets in total.  The first information sheet provides a general overview of the changes brought about by the Immigration Act 2016 and explains how and when its provisions enter into force.  The subsequent information sheets provide further detail on each of the main provisions of the Immigration Act 2016. The information sheets were reviewed and updated on 01 November 2016 after the government issued a second commencement order bringing further provisions into force.  The new page also contains seminars and presentations given by ILPA on the new provisions.

Legal Aid Monitoring Sheets

We have two monitoring sheets, one for legal representatives and one for NGOs, to monitor and record details of people they are unable to help due to the changes to legal aid. They can be used for your own purposes and/or also ILPA will be delighted to receive any that you do complete or even part complete.

The forms can be found here.
