Immigration and Asylum Appeals – a Fresh Look

JUSTICE published Delivering Justice in an Age of Austerity in April 2015. Since that time, the move towards the digitisation and modernisation of courts and tribunals has gathered pace with a £1bn investment by the Government in courts and tribunals.

Following consultation with relevant stakeholders, including senior judiciary, JUSTICE set up a Working Party of its members in May 2017, to look at the determination processes in immigration and asylum cases and how these might be reformed in the context of the HM Court & Tribunal Service (HMCTS) Reform Programme.

The final report was published on 2 July 2018, introduced by the Chair of the Working Party, Sir Ross Cranston, former High Court judge, and Sir Ernest Ryder, the Senior President of Tribunals.
