Garden Court Chambers is running a free seminar on The Immigration Act 2014: Appeals, Administrative Review and Judicial Review. The provisions represent a major change, with fewer migrants entitled to appeal and on far fewer grounds. The commencement and transitional provisions are unhelpfully complex. Three expert practitioners will guide you through the changes and how to help clients choose their remedy under the new system.
What is included?
- 1.5 CPD hours
- Talks prepared by leading public and immigration law experts
- Comprehensive notes for your future reference
- The opportunity to ask questions
Who should attend?
This seminar is aimed at lawyers, advisers, legal academics, community organisations and persons working for NGOs and international organisations. Public officials are also welcome to attend.
