It will be of use to those new to the area and those with limited experience. Topics to be covered will include detention powers and the Immigration Bail regime, the Hardial Singh principles, key features of Home Office detention policy, and public law challenges. We will examine practical issues such as evidence gathering, tactics, obtaining medical evidence, and securing release accommodation.
The course will not address post-release damages claims in any detail.
