Immigration Appeals and Remedies Handbook

By Mark Symes, Peter Jorro

This book is a practical and user-friendly text on the new provisions of the UK's Immigration Bill 2013-14 and the impact on everyday practice, which will form part of the content set of any future electronic immigration law offering. The law relating to rights of appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) (FTT) against specified 'immigration decisions' is contained in Part 5 of the UK's Nationality, Immigration, and Asylum Act 2002. Rights of onwards appeals to the same chamber of the Upper Tribunal (UT) and thence to the Court of Appeal (or Inner House of the Court of Session in Scotland) are provided for by the Tribunals, Courts, and Enforcement Act 2007. The coalition government's current Immigration Bill contains, at Part 2 (and with consequential amendments in Part 4 of Schedule 8), very major and radical amendments to the rights of appeal currently provided for in NIAA 2002. The Immigration Bill 2013-14 has, for the first time in 20 years, radically changed the law relating to immigration and asylum rights to appeals, and the remedies available in the courts and tribunal for those refused leave to remain. The book sets out the revised law and its practical application, thereby giving those involved in this area of practice a clear understanding of the new UK framework.
