The aim of the seminar is to explore the outcome of the generic challenge to the ADR rules brought by the NGO Britcits in R (oao Britcits) v SSHD [2017] EWCA Civ 368; the impact of that judgment, other case law and litigation in addressing Art. 8 ECHR arguments; and arguments under the rules in individual cases.

The seminar is further intended as a forum for discussion on best practices when preparing entry clearance applications under Art. 8 and the ADR rules and the types of evidence that may be available to support such applications.

Attendees will be encouraged to share experiences. Precedent materials from recent, successful applications will also be shared and discussed.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The decisions of the Court of Appeal in R (oao Britcits) v SSHD and Ribelli
  • The approach to Art. 8 ECHR in individual applications following those decisions
  • Preparing effective applications.
  • Best practices in gathering evidence as to Art. 8 ECHR/GEN 3.2
  • Best practices in gathering evidence as to the requirements of 'long-term personal care' and lack of availability/affordability in the country of origin
  • Practicalities in submitting applications where a fee waiver is sought
