Mastering Immigration Law: 15th edition of HJT Training Immigration Manual

The 15th edition of the HJT Manual Mastering Immigration Law is now available. It has been comprehensively updated and re-written by Mark Symes to explain even the most difficult concepts in an easy-to-understand way and to take account of the wholesale reforms to appeals and human rights applications from 2012 to 2015.

We cover:

  • An explanation on how to navigate the Immigration Rules and of all the most common routes, showing how Home Office policies fit into the system
  • All aspects of European Union applications including derived residence rights and Zambrano, the various kind of Surinder Singh case, extended family members, Accession and Association countries, and new style “one-stop” EEA appeals
  • Basic principles of nationality law, and deprivation of nationality
  • Appendix FM and Rule 276ADE and the latest judicial thinking on private and family life outside the Immigration Rules
  • Deportation and removals – the latest Rules and processes, section 117C and case law developments, and non-suspensive appeals
  • The new Appendix V on Visitors
  • The Points Based System and the case law interpreting it
  • Up-to-date treatment of international protection and asylum processes
  • The new appeals system introduced by the Immigration Act 2014
  • Administrative Review

This edition is consistently presented in a user-friendly style with

  • Bullet-pointing of key points
  • Fully worked examples
  • Top tips for your everyday practice
  • Diagrams of procedures and processes
  • Guides for taking instructions, instructing experts, drafting witness statements, and preparing grounds of appeal

We also offer a more basic version of the Manual, Introduction to Immigration Law. This HJT introductory manual is aimed at the SRA and OISC accreditation exams, and those who take the course and other established HJT customers will be able to keep abreast of developments throughout their careers by subscribing on an ongoing basis as we will be updating it regularly – the online versions are hyperlinked to every significant legal authority and Home Office policy.
