Asylum: a guide to recent legislation

March 8, 2004 — Review

Written by Jenny Bourne

The Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association has produced a valuable, easy-to-read new guide to recent legislation on asylum as at 1 December 2003.

The document is not intended to equip readers with the knowledge to offer immigration advice, but to inform non-specialist lay readers, who need to supplement existing knowledge about potential implications of asylum law on their work.

The guide includes an overview of the 2002 Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act, appeals, legal representation, detention and bail, dispersal and access to support, how to make an asylum application, access to employment, education and health care, information on minors, trafficked persons and vulnerable asylum seekers. It also has a helpful glossary of terms and list of organisations which offer help and advice on asylum by region.
