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 [2018] UKSC 53; and Rhuppiah v SSHD [2018] UKSC 58.

The speakers, who have all appeared in either KO (Nigeria) or Rhuppiah will be:
