New Webinar – 21st September 2021 – Medico-Legal Reports in asylum and immigration cases


Chambers is delighted to announce the immigration and public law team’s forthcoming webinar to take place on 21st September 2021 at 3pm.

Senior practitioners Charlotte Bayati, Samina Iqbal and Sarah Pinder will be joined by Dr Juliet Cohen, Head of Doctors at Freedom from Torture. Together, they will discuss key aspects and updates when commissioning, considering and using medico-legal reports (MLRs).

They will also explore:

  • Commissioning and using MLRs in Covid times 
  • The API and how this relates to MLRs
  • How we can use the recently disclosed guidance on how to consider MLRs in unlawful detention cases 
  • MLRs in asylum and other relevant cases touching on the Supreme Court’s judgment in KV v SSHD and other relevant recent cases
  • The proposals in New Immigration Plan to instruct joint experts
