Detention and Release of Vulnerable Adults: An update

Wednesday 15 September 2021 | 18:30

Location: Via Zoom (link will be sent on the day of the webinar)

With this seminar we mark the relaunch of the Doughty Street Immigration Detention Group, bringing together our market leading expertise in immigration law, public law and actions against the state. The seminar will examine recent developments in the law relating to immigration detention, with a focus on the detention of vulnerable adults, including those with mental health concerns, victims of torture and victims of trafficking. The detention safeguards including rules 34 & 35, the Adults at Risk policy and trafficking frameworks will be covered; as well as practical considerations around release/ transfer, continuity of medical care, and accommodation. Coverage of these themes will touch on the impact of the post-Brexit legal environment and the Government’s proposed reforms to the immigration system, and panellists will consider where significant future challenges may lie.

Chair: Maya Sikand QC

Speakers: Graham Denholm, Anthony Vaughan and Catherine Meredith.
