Article 8 is an immigration and human rights law project run in collaboration with our Clinic, Islington Law Centre (ILC), Hackney Migrant Centre (HMC), Reed Smith LLP and Akin Gump Straus Hauer & Feld LLP
Migrant families with children who are either are British or have spent all their life in the U.K face significant difficulties making applications for permission to remain in the U.K - having to overcome extremely complex legal rules and ever-increasing fees
HMC refers clients to ILC who will then represent families with their applications for permission to stay in the UK on human rights grounds. A team of lawyers are assembled from each firm to assist ILC in the preparation of the cases, with support from our students. The Clinic, with ILC, provides legal training to the lawyers and students on immigration law and coordinates the project.
