(FULLY BOOKED) WEB 1126 Criminality and the Immigration Rules (WEBINAR)

Event | Training

This training is now FULLY BOOKED. If you would like us to repeat this course then please let us know here

Delegates will obtain an understanding of the impact criminality has on applications for entry clearance and leave to remain (including settlement). We will look particularly at the general grounds, which were the subject of a major overhaul in December 2020, and at the different grounds for refusal set out in Appendix FM and Appendix EU, and the aim is to give delegates a knowledge of the impact of different criminal sanctions on immigration applications and how to address the issue in casework.  
•         The general grounds for refusal relating to criminality
•         Definitions of offences
•         Relevant case law
•         Case studies and discussion to explore tactics for addressing the issues in casework and to discuss the use of discretion

Tutor biographies:

Emma is an associate solicitor in the immigration department at Bindmans LLP where she has worked for over ten years. She covers all areas of immigration, asylum and nationality law.  She has particular interest and experience in complex immigration and nationality cases involving families and children including inter-country adoption and she regularly writes court reports on immigration issues in family cases.   Emma qualified as a solicitor in 1995 at Bates, Wells and Braithwaite.  Although she has spent most of her 25 years post qualification experience working in immigration law in private practice Emma has also lectured at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.  She is a volunteer adviser for Rainbow Migration.

David specializes in all areas of immigration and asylum law. He has a particular focus on claims relating to complex questions of immigration rules and policy, asylum claims based on sexual and gender identity, claims relating to people who suffer from mental and physical illness, and claims involving rights of children. He shares One Pump Court’s commitment to equal access to justice without discrimination and to upholding the rule of law.

He works particularly with clients whose asylum claims raise issues relating to sexual/gender identity, who suffer from mental and physical illness, in cases involving complex family histories and needs, with clients whose claims are based on religious identity, with unaccompanied minor asylum-seekers, with clients faced with conducive deportation decisions under the old or the new (‘automatic’) provisions, and with clients facing removal to other EU states either under the Dublin Regulation or for public policy reasons.
