What we do

Our priority is to promote a fair and non-discriminatory immigration system through policy influencing and litigation.

In recent years high-profile PLP cases have prevented regressive changes and/or improved legal protections across a range of migrants’ rights issues including indefinite detention, the legal aid residence test, and the right of access to the court for migrants facing removal from the UK.

Recent reforms have significantly changed the landscape for migrant groups in the UK, presenting greater risks to access to justice for those subject to immigration control.

Our main goals in this area are:

  • To identify and challenge systemic unfairness and discrimination in immigration control
  • To effectively challenge barriers that prevent access to justice for migrants, particularly those that arise from recent reform
