Film Screening - Calais Children: A Case to Answer

Jan 2018 poster.jpeg

A film made by a Goldsmiths academic highlighting the plight of refugee children has been used as “cornerstone” evidence in a High Court Judicial Review.

We have organised a screening of this film on 4th July 2018.

Professor Clayton, who directed the film and gave a witness statement for the Judicial Review will be in attendance and speak after the film has been screened. Her work in the Jungle refugee camp in Calais forms a key part of the challenge which is being brought by the Public Law team at Duncan Lewis Solicitors.

It is a must see for any immigration lawyer, JR lawyer or those interested in immigration law.

They are bringing a challenge against the Home Secretary for failing to meet the terms of the Dubs Amendment which enshrined in law the relocation of unaccompanied refugee children from other countries to the UK, but which the Government closed in February 2017.

Practical Law CPD Series: Mental Health Law

On 1 May 2018, MTYBA will be hosting the first of three events in our Practical Law CPD series for 2018. This first part is all about Mental Health Law, where we'll be joined by Professor Neil Greenberg, a consultant occupational and forensic psychiatrist. Professor Greenberg served in the United Kingdom Armed Forces for more than 23 years and has deployed, as a psychiatrist and researcher, to a number of hostile environments including Afghanistan and Iraq. He also gave evidence in the recent 'Marine A' appeal. Joining him is Aswini Weereratne QC of Doughty Street Chambers, a specialist in mental health and capacity law, and since 2002 a Judge of the First Tier Tribunal (Health, Education and Social Care Chamber). The event promises to provide a fascinating insight into a critically important and cross-cutting area of law.

When: 1 May 2018, 18:30

Where: Taskers, Ashley Building, Middle Temple

No RSVP necessary. Refreshments provided.

Stay tuned for details of parts two and three of the CPD series.
