Upper Tribunal immigration judge recruitment drive
So the Judicial Appointments Commission is seeking to recruit “up to 20” fee paid Deputy Judges of the Upper Tribunal, Immigration and Asylum Chamber and six salaried Judges of the Upper Tribunal, Immigration and Asylum Chamber. The former are paid £595 per day for up to 30 days per year. The latter are paid £130,875.
Applications close noon 30 September 2014 if you are interested!
It seems all but certain that statutory appeal rights are to be curtailed from October 2014, and these new judges should be available as the corresponding increase in judicial review applications starts to take effect.
