EIN is again delighted to announce that the indispensable and ever-popular Best Practice Guide to Asylum and Human Rights Appeals on EIN has been newly updated.

As with the previous updates in 2012, 2015 and 2018, the updated 2020 Best Practice Guide (or BPG, as it's commonly known) remains freely available to all.

You can access the new 2020 BPG at www.ein.org.uk/bpg/contents. We encourage you to share this link widely.

The BPG deals with the conduct of asylum and human rights appeals in the First-tier Tribunal (IAC) and provides the practical advice and information required to conduct all stages of appeals according to best practice.

The 2020 updated version has been authored by Mark Henderson and Rowena Moffatt of Doughty Street Chambers and Alison Pickup of the Public Law Project. As with the 2018 update, Rowena Moffatt's extensive input has been vital in producing this year's update.

The new 2020 update reflects the law as up to 1st December 2019.

This year's update of the BPG has been funded by EIN and we're again grateful to the Public Law Project for supporting the 2020 update, as it did with 2018's.

Originally authored by Mark Henderson in 2003, the Best Practice Guide to Asylum and Human Rights Appeals is now on its fifth electronic update. The updates in 2009, 2012 and 2015 were funded by the Nuffield Foundation. The 2018 update was funded by the Legal Education Foundation.

As with the previous updates, the 2020 BPG is comprehensively linked to case law on EIN (making it easy for members of EIN to access the cited cases) and to legislation and resources on EIN and external websites.

In addition, every paragraph of every chapter remains individually bookmarked for easy reference - the name of each bookmark is the number of the paragraph (use the format, for example, https://www.ein.org.uk/bpg/chapter/3#3.34B to link directly to any paragraph).
