Info Service


On this page you will find the most recent Update and most recent Information Sheets provided by ILPA's Information Service (see below).  The 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).  Updates set out on one page a very short note of recent developments.  Information Sheets set out on two pages some more detailed information on a specific issue. 

The Information Service 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.  In addition to the Updates and Information Sheets, papers and notes prepared for workshops with non-lawyers are also provided (see the links at the top left of this page).

Updates and Information Sheets are sent out by email and subscription is free.  You are welcome to copy or disseminate them.
