Fee waiver policy ruled unlawful: understanding the implications of the Upper Tribunal’s judgment in R (Dzineku-Liggison) v SSHD

The Upper Tribunal’s recent ruling in R (Dzineku-Liggison) v SSHD that the Home Office’s fee waiver policy is unlawful promises to have far-reaching effects, as do the Home Office’s concessions over what constitutes a human rights claim. Join counsel and solicitor in the case, Alasdair Mackenzie of Doughty Street and Saul Stone of Duncan Lewis, with Zoe Harper of Doughty Street in the chair, for a briefing on the case and its implications, and for a chance to ask questions. Participants are welcome to send questions through in advance as well as raise questions during the webinar.

Zambrano child cases – challenging Home Office decisions

Simon Cox will analyse how to win Ruiz Zambrano cases for parents and carers of British children. Can the Home Office refuse because the other parent won’t be removed from the UK?

The webinar will be chaired by Agata Patyna and deal with applications for residence cards and under the EU Settlement Scheme as well as appeals to the First-tier Tribunal.
