We are excited to announce this free online training seminar for legal practitioners delivered by Christopher Cole and Kathryn Cronin, about how to successfully run complex asylum cases, using the lens of young Albanian asylum claims, which are often considered some of the most challenging to run.
Christopher Cole is a freelance consultant solicitor who specialises in complex Asylum and Human Rights cases and sits as a fee-paid judge at the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration & Asylum Chamber). Christopher was partner and Head of Immigration at Parker Rhodes Hickmotts until September 2020.
Kathryn Cronin is a barrister and former academic with some 39 years’ advocacy, policy and research experience. She was joint head of Garden Court Chambers from 2013 to 2017 and has lectured and published on international children’s law. She is well known for her representation of separated children, child asylum seekers and child victims of trafficking.
The seminar will cover: areas such as credibility, sufficiency of protection and internal relocation, certification, liaison with the country of origin, and will also include the participation of young asylum-seekers from Shpresa Programme. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers.
This event is part of a wider project: Breaking the Chains, a partnership project dedicated to improving outcomes for Albanian children and young people seeking asylum in the UK.
