At an event hosted by Kingsley Napley LLP, Professor Sir Ross Cranston, chairing the JUSTICE working party, launched the latest JUSTICE report, Immigration and Asylum appeals – a fresh look. The working party examined the considerable challenges facing the appeals system and its report comes at a time of significant change under the HMCTS Reform Programme.
Sir Ross, an Associate Member of 3VB, stated:
“The Immigration and Asylum appeal system suffers from widely reported deficiencies and a culture of non-compliance with the rules and practice directions. This leads to high volumes of cases in the appeals system and lengthy delays. The Working Party recognised that the reforms underway present an opportunity to improve the processes, but considered that further measures are needed to effect meaningful change.”
