In this free webinar held on 6 April 2021, Lucy Mair of Garden Court North Chambers provides practical, up to date information on best practices based upon recent case law and policy guidance, including:

  • Challenging negative NRM decisions: We will review common reasons for negative decisions to be made at both RG and CG stages and how these can best be challenged;
  • Competing remedies: requests for reconsideration; judicial review and asylum appeals: We will discuss the various alternative remedies when a negative NRM decision has been made and the relative merits of pursuing each one;
  • Overlapping trafficking and asylum claims: We will discuss how to build the most effective asylum claim for victims of modern slavery including gathering evidence; the role of vulnerability/ personal circumstances; the relevance of medical and country experts; and preparing legal submissions for appeal. We will discuss how a negative NRM decision can impact upon an asylum claim and the duties of the immigration tribunal in these cases.

Target Audience

This webinar is aimed at legal practitioners and those working with them.


The recording and slides were available for three months following the event.
