Garden Court North’s Lucy Mair will be delivering a training webinar for ILPA – Introduction to Asylum and International Protection – alongside Sumita Gupta, solicitor at the Migrant and Refugee Children’s Unit (MiCLU) at Islington Law Centre and Freedom from Torture.
This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to the areas of asylum and international protection for ILPA members, aimed at practitioners who seek an introduction to or comprehensive view of the asylum application and appeals process. Lucy and Sumita will examine the concepts and operation of immigration control, the hierarchy of entitlements, immigration enforcement, immigration detention and bail.
There will be an overview of the legal framework in relation to international protection, including asylum, humanitarian protection and human rights claims. The session will also explore the entire asylum process from initial claim through to appeals, judicial reviews, fresh claims, outcomes and applications for family reunion, including legal arguments and best evidence at each stage.
There will be a brief consideration of the intersection of trafficking and modern slavery claims with claims for international protection, an examination of working with vulnerable clients and those lacking capacity, and finally, a brief discussion on funding and legal aid.
