MTYBA Film Screening - Calais Children: A Case to Answer, 4 July 2018
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 from 18:00 in the Sherrard Room.
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.
