Judicial Review of Asylum Support

Thursday 30 July 2020 | 4pm

Covid has put asylum support arrangements under even more pressure. Asylum-seekers are being housed in overcrowded, unsanitary conditions. Some face long delays in provision of accommodation or cash support.

Polly Glynn, solicitor at Deighton Pierce Glynn, and Simon Cox, barrister at Doughty Street, will address how failures to provide adequate asylum support can be effectively challenged by judicial review. From PAP letters, through gathering evidence, to issuing urgent applications and damages claims, this training will help solicitors and advisers understand how to get asylum-seeker clients into adequate accommodation, and the possibilities for compensation for delay and inadequacy. Ben Chataway, barrister at Doughty Street will chair the discussion and open the seminar to questions from attendees.
