Course Description: 

This course focuses on the rights of migrant parents and their children, the options that are available to assert those rights and how and when to do this in an immigration context.

The course will not cover the private and family life routes for immigration, but it will touch upon how evidence from the family courts may benefit an immigration application. It will also cover availability of legal aid for family matters, professional ethics and the rules on disclosure of evidence from family proceedings.
