The Immigration and Protection Tribunal (the Tribunal) is an independent body established under the Immigration Act 2009. It hears appeals regarding: Residence class visas; Refugee and Protected Persons; Deportation (resident); and Deportation (humanitarian). The stakes are extremely high with the decisions of the Tribunal often life changing for those subject to its decisions. It is essential that clients are able to receive the benefit of the highest possible advocacy in this environment.

However, immigration lawyers and advisers sometimes find conducting these appeals extremely challenging. It is the view of the Tribunal that often these appeals could be of a higher standard. What separates a strong appeal from one that is not?

Attend this seminar and receive the benefits of candid advice with regard to submitting strong appeals to the Tribunal. This seminar will canvass all forms of appeals including both “on the papers” appeals and oral hearings. It will consider what the Tribunal is looking for from counsel and representatives, as well as how they can best represent their clients.

The purpose of this book

Most counsel who work in the immigration field will be faced with having to lodge an appeal to the Tribunal from time to time. Our aim is to provide guidance on the most effective presentation of such appeals.

It is obviously impossible to provide a comprehensive analysis of every aspect of every conceivable type of appeal. There are, for example, no fewer than eight possible grounds for the deportation liability of a resident, some of which are so obscure that there is yet to be an appeal. What the authors hope to achieve is to provide insight into the obligations of counsel towards their clients and to the Tribunal and to give a strong picture of best practice in putting forward a client’s appeal, whether on the papers or by way of an oral hearing. The suggestions and advice herein have broad application and the philosophy behind them should be taken as informing every aspect of work before the Tribunal.

If even half of what we say here is taken up, the quality and efficiency of appeals will improve significantly. If, like us, you are concerned for the welfare and rights of claimants, you must agree that we should strive to that end.
