This timely and crucial seminar looks at preparing immigration appeals following the first Covid-19 lockdown of 2020, when the government brought in changes that some solicitors were not aware of as they themselves were on furlough. In this session, Great James Street’s Chengetai Mupara will look at:
- The new appeal system
- Changes brought by the reform online procedure
- Skeleton Arguments
- Preparing Witness evidence
- Issues in dispute
- Obtaining expert evidence
- Instructions to expert
- The introduction of Technology in the IAC
- Getting ready for CVP
- Evidence from abroad
Chengetai’s passion for advocacy and human rights started from a very young age. He started off as a pro-democracy campaigner, student activist and a human rights defender in Zimbabwe.
He now has a busy practice and regularly appears in the First-tier Tribunal (“FTT”) and Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, County Court, Crown Court and Magistrates’ Courts.
