If you want to challenge a decision of the UK Border Agency ("UKBA"), our immigration barristers can represent you in immigration appeal proceedings before the immigration tribunal and higher courts.
There are two appeal tribunals, a First-tier Tribunal and an Upper Tribunal. There is an Immigration and Asylum Chamber in each.
Types of Immigration Appeals in the UK
The main types of appeals heard by the immigration tribunal are appeals against decisions to:
- refuse a person permission to enter to the UK
- refuse a person permission to remain in the UK
- deport somebody already in the UK
- refuse a person asylum in the UK
Immigration Barristers for Immigration Appeal Hearings
If you want to challenge a decision of the UKBA at an immigration appeal hearing, an immigration barrister could greatly strengthen your hand. Using knowledge and experience developed over many years, our immigration barristers can advise you on how best to prepare your case for a tribunal hearing. Predicting what an Immigration Judge will decide about an immigration appeal requires experience of having been in court. Our immigration barristers are specialists at conducting appeal hearings and know how Immigration Judges think.
At a tribunal hearing, a well-argued case will impress the Tribunal. Our immigration barristers’ specialist training in advocacy, legal knowledge and courtroom experience could make a big difference to the outcome of your case.
If your immigration appeal has been dismissed, you will only be able to appeal further if it is possible to identify a material error of law in the determination. Our immigration barristers have specialist knowledge of immigration law and legal developments. This means that they are uniquely well placed to identify mistakes of law and draft grounds of appeal.
All our immigration barristers have the right to argue cases in the higher courts. This means that they can continue to represent you in the Upper Tribunal, High Court, Court of Appeal and beyond if necessary.
