Immigration and Asylum Team

(Including the new Immigration and Asylum Law charity-funded project).

Kent Law Clinic provides specialist immigration and asylum advice and can represent in tribunal and High Court proceedings in a small number of cases. With the help of students from the volunteer Immigration and Asylum Team (IAT), solicitor Catherine Carpenter has succeeded in halting removals from the UK and enabling detained clients to make fresh claims for asylum. Referrals are taken from Kent Refugee Help and Dover Detainees Visitors Group. More information...

Public Access to Land Project

This project represents a collaboration between students at the Kent Law Clinic and barristers (acting pro bono) from Francis Taylor Building, Inner Temple for the benefit of residents in Kent with ‘access to land’ issues - eg village greens and public rights of way; and it provides for Clinic students to be assessed for this work in a new ‘Access to Land’ module on the LLB curriculum.
