Webinar: Access to justice in the immigration and asylum system
JUSTICE is hosting a virtual event on 7 December at 5pm: Barriers and Threats to Access to Justice in the Immigration and Asylum System.
In 2018, JUSTICE published Immigration and Asylum Appeals – a Fresh Look. It made 49 practical recommendations aimed at reforming the difficulties faced by the UK immigration and asylum appeals system at a time of digitisation. Three years after the report’s publication, the system has faced unprecedented strains and challenges through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Furthermore, the Home Office’s New Plan for Immigration, the Nationality and Borders Bill, and the Judicial Review and Courts Bill all promise fundamental changes to the way immigration and asylum decisions are made and appealed within our system.
Chaired by Sonali Naik QC, this event will discuss current uncertainties in the future of access to justice within immigration and asylum. Panellists include Bella Sankey (Director, Detention Action), Adrian Berry (Barrister, Garden Court Chambers; Patron, ILPA), Alison Pickup (Director, Asylum Aid), and Jawaid Luqmani (Solicitor, Luqmani Thompson & Partners).
