DT 1753 Article 8 Update


“An absolutely essential course for anyone dealing with Article 8 issues.  Highly recommended” – Former Delegate

Is there still hope for Article 8 claims?
 
For the last four years we have watched the Home Office fight back against the gains made in protecting our clients’ right to respect for their private and family lives.

This course aims:

  1. to review the principles of Article 8 protection;
  2. to give an overview of the policies, Immigration Rules, and statutes which set out the Secretary of State’s understanding of Article 8;
  3. to give an up-to-date and detailed review of domestic and Strasbourg case-law relating to Article 8; and
  4. to consider strategies for protecting our clients’ Article 8 rights in the face of hostile courts, tribunals and politicians.

David Chirico and Sonali Naik are experts in this area and their regular Article 8 training sessions for ILPA always eagerly awaited.
