Garden Court Chambers

The approach taken by courts and tribunals to Article 8 ECHR in an immigration context has developed rapidly in recent years. The Immigration Rules have been expanded and particularised in an attempt to bring them closer to a full assessment of Article 8. Legislation has been passed in the same vein.
The Supreme Court has sought to bring clarity and guidance to these developments, most recently in KO (Nigeria) v SSHD  UKSC 53; and Rhuppiah v SSHD  UKSC 58.
This seminar will provide an overview of the changing landscape, and detailed analysis of KO (Nigeria), Rhuppiah, and explore what might follow.
The seminar will cover
- Section 117A-D of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002;
- The Immigration Rules concerned with family and private life;
- Evidential and practical guidance on preparing Article 8 claims before courts and tribunals.
The speakers, who have all appeared in either KO (Nigeria) or Rhuppiah will be:
- Sonali Naik QC, Garden Court Chambers
- Helen Foot, Garden Court Chambers
- David Sellwood, Garden Court; Chambers
- Muhunthan Paramesvaran, Wilson Solicitors
