The HJT Immigration Manual 14th Edition is now available to purchase in hard copy. At nearly 600 pages of informative text it represents the most up-to-date and user-friendly guide to immigration law, one that many practitioners have used both as their introduction to this area of practice and subsequently to keep themselves abreast of developments.
Packed with practical tips and realistic examples of regularly occurring problems, the Manual covers all aspects of substantive immigration law, from asylum to the Points Based System, from family migration (including both Appendix FM and applications outside the rules) to European Union law and criminal offences, as well as dealing with casework skills and professional conduct.
The latest edition covers:
- The latest ten Statement of Changes including the October 2014 amendments to the “private life” route
- The partial commencement of the Immigration Act 2014 for students and foreign criminals and its implications for appeals
- The section 117 statutory presumption as to the public interest in human rights litigation
- The new “in-country” Administrative Review procedure under the Immigration Rules
- Non suspensive appeal provisions in criminal deportation cases
- The numerous changes to the EEA Regulations
- Important case law addressing maternity and retaining worker status for EEA nationals, the interpretation of Appendix FM and Rule 276ADE and fairness in the Tribunal system
The Manual will shortly be available as an online resource on a subscription basis, with further updates being made regularly, to make it a unique resource to immigration lawyers and indeed anyone interested in the field – so in future it will be a living instrument featuring important new developments when you need to know about them.
