Course Overview

This bite size webinar will offer an analysis of the recent UK Supreme Court decision on certification of human rights-based deport first, appeal later under section 94B of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 and potential future trends in the Secretary of State’s use of this power.

Barrister and lecturer Ben Amunwa will set out the practical steps for those whose cases have been affected by the certification power in section 94B NIAA 2002, and will summarise the key points arising in the major decision in R (on the application of Kiarie and Byndloss) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2017] UKSC 42.

This webinar will provide practitioners with an analytical toolkit for responding to clients whose claims have been affected by the certification power in section 94B NIAA 2002.

The development of guidance that applies more broadly to out-of-country appeals, and judicial reviews of certificates under section 94 and 94B NIAA 2002, will also be considered.
