—————————————————————————

Landmark Chambers will be hosting a webinar on Thursday 21st May, 2020 at 4:00pm – 5:00pm to discuss how and why the ‘No Recourse to Public Funds’ policy has been held to be unlawful (R (W) v SSHD).

On 7th May, the Divisional Court upheld a challenge to the Home Office policy of imposing no recourse to public funds conditions on migrants’ leave because it failed to obviate inhuman and degrading treatment contrary to Article 3 ECHR. In this webinar, the legal team acting for the Claimant will explain the long history of the strategic litigation leading to this result.

**Participation is free of charge however, advance registration is required. Please note that participants will receive the joining instructions by email prior to the webinar. If you have any queries regarding this event please email webinars@landmarkchambers.co.uk.**
