Amanda Weston, of Garden Court Chambers’ Public Law Team, is in Hong Kong this week delivering training to decision-makers, lawyers and judges about international protection law for refugees and trafficked persons. She is delivering the training on behalf of the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR.
She also spoke at an event organised by The University of Hong Kong and the Justice Centre Hong Kong. Amanda provided a UK perspective on the use of immigration detention and accelerated refugee determination procedures. She offered advice on key lessons that can be drawn from the UK Government’s use of immigration detention, which has been an area of repeated litigation.
Amanda Weston is a member of Garden Court’s Public Law, Immigration Detention and Immigration and Asylum Teams and has extensive experience in these and other areas of law. More information about Amanda’s practice can be found on her profile.
