LIverpool Law Clinic (statelessness)

LIverpool Law Clinic (statelessness)

Last updated 18/05/24

"The clinic is part of the University of Liverpool School of Law and Social Justice. Under the supervision of an in-house legal team of qualified lawyers, final year Law students have direct, practical experience of advising or representing clients. The Law Clinic speciliases in advising clients who are stateless or at risk of statelessness to make applications to the Home Office for leave to remain in the UK. Update from Judith Carter at the Clinic - August 2021 - I have some capacity to advise, and possibly assist, for free, where someone is considering making a part 14 statelessness leave application. Examples are where someone is released from detention following failure to remove; has been on a long period on s4 with failed voluntary return; failed asylum seekers who have been rejected for re-documentation; children of mixed national marriages or of countries where the mother cannot pass her nationality on; Palestinians, some Syrian children (eg. born without birth registration or absent father), documented Bidoons, people whose birth was not registered. We have recently had successes in mixed deport/statelessness cases, some trafficking related cases and currently the ex-Malaysian BOCs are trying the part 14 route. We work with students mainly over term time so we would first see clients in October/November. I’ve worked with some advisers on a partial retainer basis, just to advise on the statelessness aspect. We don’t have a legal aid contract but have a budget for disbursements. ECF may be available for your client for these applications.
