This webinar will consider the approach of the courts to the legality of immigration detention in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will examine the decision of the Divisional Court in Detention Action & Ravin v SSHD  EWHC 732 (Admin) and the approach of the Administrative Court in subsequent cases. It will consider the relevance of the risks arising from the pandemic and the impact of the pandemic on removability, as well as the Home Office’s policy response. Talks will be given by Tim Buley QC and Graham Denholm, both specialists in immigration detention who have acted for claimants in challenges arising out of the pandemic. Tim will give evidence on this issue to the Home Affairs Select Committee on 7 May 2020.
