Modules within this course

  1. Lodging an appeal

    How to lodge an appeal to the immigration tribunal
  2. What makes a good witness statement?

    Witness statements are used in almost every single case in court. But what distinguishes a good witness statement from one that is mediocre or even very poor? We look at some hints and tips, including use of language, narrative techniques and detail.
  3. Drafting a good skeleton argument

    Good skeleton arguments are a rarity, if you ask the judges. As it is the judges who are the intended audience for such documents, it is important to see things from their perspective. This course looks at the constituent elements to a good skeleton argument and offers some nuts and bolts suggestions.
  4. Preparing an appeal bundle

    A good appeal bundle needs to be paginated, have an index and include the relevant documents. It sounds easy, but poor quality appeal bundles are commonplace. This course offers some suggestions on putting together a good bundle, including doing it in electronic form using PDF format.
