Course Overview

Before 15 January 2018, a person who has been examined or detained under immigration powers could be released or provided with a temporary form of status by the Secretary of State under a range of different powers (i.e. temporary admission, temporary release, Tribunal bail, immigration officer bail and restriction orders).

From 15 January 2018, the immigration bail provisions contained in Schedule 10 of Immigration Act 2016 come into force. The effect of Schedule 10 of Immigration Act 2016 2016 is to consolidate these 6-different temporary legal powers into a single power of ‘immigration bail’, which allows for a person to reside in the UK on a temporary basis subject to one or more bail conditions.

Delivered by Ben Amunwa of The 36 Group, this 4-part course will provide an introduction to the new legal framework of immigration bail. Viewers will gain insight into practical issues that they are likely to encounter when advising clients, applying for bail or seeking to vary or challenge bail conditions.

Consideration will also be given to the applicability of key points of principle under previous case law to the new framework.

Please note, this course will assume some familiarity with the basics of bail under the pre-15 January 2018 law.
