Foreign National Prisoners - Rights, Entitlements and Challenges
Foreign nationals make up 11% of the prison population of England and Wales.
This webinar will examine some of the issues that foreign nationals face when navigating the prison system and explore how to effectively influence and challenge the decisions that affect them.
With the Brexit transition period now at an end, and the EU Prisoner Transfer Agreement no longer applying to the UK, many foreign national prisoners from EEA countries are understandably anxious to know what will happen to them: this timely webinar will equip you to answer their questions.
This webinar is suitable both for prison law practitioners and for immigration and criminal lawyers who want to expand their knowledge so as to be able to better advise their foreign national prisoner clients as to their rights and entitlements and identify potential challenges.
