Immigration Law Review Volume 5 - Workshop

What will the course program cover?

Morning – Review of legislative change and caselaw developments
The morning workshop will provide detailed consideration of legislative change in the immigration portfolio from November 2016 to April 2017 including coverage of:

• changes to employer sponsored visas announced on 18 April 2017
• New Zealand stream skilled independent visa commencing 1 July 2017
• character amendments; and 
• bridging visa changes.

In addition, we will provide in depth caselaw analysis and reflect upon trends in judicial review.

Afternoon – Judicial review workshop
Our afternoon session will workshop case examples to develop grounds of judicial review and strategies for running judicial review cases. This will be an opportunity for participants to obtain insights from experienced practitioners about how to analyse decisions of the Administrative Appeal Tribunal and Department of Immigration and Border Protection according to judicial review principles. We will workshop judicial review pleadings. We will discuss the methodology of judicial review analysis. We will examine the importance of strategic decision-making to successful outcomes.

This workshop will benefit practitioners seeking to develop their judicial review practice. It will also improve practitioners’ advocacy before decision-makers of the DIBP and the AAT.
