Immigration Cases in the Court of Appeal
This is a specialist course looking at all aspects of running immigration cases in the Court of Appeal. The course will cover both statutory appeals from the Upper Tribunal (IAC), appeals in judicial review cases of all kinds (both from the Administrative Court and Upper Tribunal (IAC)). It will address permission to appeal, the second appeals test, the developing doctrine of the Upper Tribunal as a "specialist tribunal" and the implications that has for Court of Appeal cases, procedural issues including the approach of the Court of Appeal to provide interim relief in various kinds of appeal. The course will also look closely at costs and funding issues, which are likely to be of particular importance to practitioners who must adapt to the changing legal aid landscape, and tactics.
Litigation funding by Conditional Fee Arrangements and Damages Based Agreements
The course will cover the essential elements for valid CFAs and DBAs, the variety of formats these agreements can take, common pitfalls with reference to caselaw, and the practical pros and cons of these arrangements.
