Welcome to the April 2018 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This was the month that the Windrush scandal came to a head, so I start by focusing on the fallout from that before looking at an issue that would otherwise have led this update: more law firms in serious trouble with the regulator over their conduct of litigation. It’s not just those representing migrants who the judges took to task, though: the Home Office has been strongly criticised by the Court of Appeal for its performance in court. Finally I run through some interesting and/or significant case law (“interesting” and “significant” not always being synonymous, sadly) in the fields of deportation and asylum before finishing on the nature of human rights appeals to the tribunal.
The material is all drawn from the April blog posts on Free Movement.
