Guidance for Non Legal Practitioners on KA (Afghanistan) & Ors v SSHD [2012]

This seminar is aimed at non-legal practitioners who support refugee children and former refugee children, through the asylum process and beyond. The seminar will discuss the implications of the recent judgement in KA (Afghanistan) & Ors v SSHD [2012] EWCA Civ 1014  to their cases, in particular cases of those who have now exhausted the asylum process and are unrepresented. The seminar will offer guidance to non legal practitioners, so that they can raise awareness amongst the refugee children and former refugee children they support about the possible benefits of this decision, and effectively signpost or make relevant referrals for legal advice and representation

Recent legal developments in expulsion and detention cases concerning children

This seminar will focus on two important areas with which immigration practitioners representing children should familiarise themselves.

First, this seminar will examine developments in law and policy relating to the best interests of the child. The best interests of the child are a mandatory and primary consideration in asylum, immigration and nationality decisions involving children both under s.55 Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009 and under Articles 8 and (in detention cases) 5 ECHR. We will focus on developments since the Supreme Court's seminal judgment in ZH (Tanzania) [2011] UKSC 4, [2011] 2 WLR 148. We will look at the treatment of the best interests of the child in domestic jurisprudence (such as AJ (India) [2011] EWCA Civ 1191 and SS (Sri Lanka) [2012] EWCA Civ 945) and also in the ECtHR's case law (in particular Nunez v Norway, application 5597/09). We will also review the UKBA's own published guidance concerning the separation of families in criminal deportation and detention cases.

Second, this seminar will consider developments in the law around the status and entitlements of children who are citizens of the European Union. We will focus on developments since the landmark judgment of the Grand Chamber of the CJEU in Zambrano (C-34/09). This will include an examination of the Immigration (EEA) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 which purport to give effect to Zambrano. We will also look at the CJEU's judgment in Dereci (C-256/11) refining and arguably restricting the impact of Zambrano.

The course will give practical guidance on how arguments around the best interests of the child and EU law can be deployed in challenges to expulsion and detention (where the child is being expelled with the parent or where the expulsion or detention splits the parent from the child).
