This guide, Statelessness and applications for leave to remain: a best practice guide, by Dr Sarah Woodhouse and Judith Carter (Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association and University of Liverpool Law Clinic, November 2016), published jointly by the Immigration Law Practitioner’s Association and the University of
Liverpool Law Clinic, is an excellent resource for practitioners advising and representing clients considering or making an application for under Part 14 of the Immigration Rule. The Guide provides step-by-step information on identifying statelessness, understanding procedures and practices relating to applications for statelessness leave, preparing a well-evidenced application, and challenging refusal. Asylum Aid’s Legal Services Manager, Ian Kane, and Legal Policy Officer, Cynthia Orchard, served on the Advisory group for the Guide, and Asylum Aid is collaborating with ILPA and Liverpool Law Clinic in providing statelessness training for lawyers based on the Guide. This is essential reading for any practitioner working with stateless clients in the UK and a very helpful resource for anyone with an interest in statelessness.
