"What if…?" These kinds of questions may now seem pointless in the aftermath of the victory of Leave in the EU Referendum. Instead we hear 'What's done is done', 'Leave means Leave', 'out is out', etc., etc., etc. But one question has always nagged at...

R (O) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2016] UKSC 19, on appeal from: [2014] EWCA Civ 990: The Supreme Court unanimously dismissed the appeal concerning the appellant's challenge to her continued detention in Immigration Removal Centres which had resulted in her poor mental health...

I’m on a packed Piccadilly Line train in rush hour. I’m going to provide moral support to a former member of the Write to Life Group, at her asylum appeal hearing at the First Tier Immigration Tribunal - somewhere near Heathrow Airport. The TfL website gave me four different options...

About the guest blog

EIN's guest blog is intended as a platform where we gather together some of the best of immigration law blogging. And it is a platform where you can post your opinions, commentary or analysis on immigration and asylum law.

If you're a seasoned blogger, of if you've always wanted to blog but never found an audience, blogging on EIN is a way of ensuring your opinions are available to read on a leading immigration law website.

EIN encourages your blog submissions.

You can send your submissions to us at support@ein.org.uk.

Please include a title for your piece, and please also let us know the name that you wish to appear as the author of the post. This may simply be your full name, but we appreciate that some may wish to post anonymously or under a pseudonym.

Blog submissions should ideally be on the theme of immigration or asylum law, but we're happy to receive submissions on more general immigration topics.
