Challenging Home Office Decisions on General Grounds for Refusal - Criminality
Many applications made to the Home Office face being refused on a general ground for refusal contained in the Immigration Rules.
Ever since the Government has taken a more coordinated and tougher stance against 'foreign criminals', the Immigration Rules have reflected the increase in regulation when it comes to an applicant's previous conduct, whether this has amounted to a criminal conviction or not.
This webinar will review the rules relating to general grounds of refusal, focusing on those involving a person's criminal record and previous conduct, and how these operate together with an assessment of corresponding Home Office guidance.
The webinar is designed for lawyers working in immigration law, both at application stage and at appeals.
