his 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.
