Course Overview

On 15 January 2018 a wholly new framework for immigration bail was introduced by Schedule 10 of The Immigration Act 2016 coming into force. 

It is important that practitioners in immigration law are familiar with the new scheme and in particular with the new Guidance Note on Immigration Bail for Judges of the First-Tier Tribunal and the UKVI Policy Guidance on Immigration Bail. A good understanding of these tools will allow for far more effective bail applications.

This webinar will look at the law and policy governing immigration bail applications, we will cover the everyday issues likely to arise in bails hearings, the more difficult matters of deciding when and whether to withdraw bail applications, how to manage the complexities of bail where an individual is subject to removal directions and ensuring that clients are subjected to the least onerous bail conditions.
