The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislation changes and amendments. Published within weeks of an Act, they offer expert commentary by leading names on the effects, extent and scope of the legislation, plus a full copy of the Act itself.They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes. The Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants) Act 2004 is the third major piece of legislation in this area in the last 5 years and will introduce a number of radical changes to the current Asylum system. The Act plans to re-shape the way in which immigration appeals are handled as well asintroducing significant changes in practice and procedure. For example, new criminal offences are created in relation to documentation and trafficking; rights to challenge removal to a 'safe third country' are removed; asylum support for families who have no further appeal against a failed asylumclaim is ended and there are new enforcement powers for immigration officers including powers of entry, search and arrest.The Guide is written by an experienced team of Immigration barristers from Doughty Street Chambers. Structured in a clear and logical way following the parts of the Act, it provides an up-to-date guide as to how the law now works and is an essential purchase for practitioners and organisationsworking in this fast changing area of the law.
Editor Peter Morris, before coming to the Bar, was Director of Policy for the public service trade union, UNISON. His current legal practice is mainly in immigration and asylum but also includes employment law, particularly in relation to migrant workers.

Editorial Reviews

`The guide follows the structure of the Act. A clear and concise introduction summarises the core provisions. The subsequent chapters contextualise the new law, allowing the reader to contrast the changes with previous legislation...This [the creation of the single-tier Asylum and ImmigrationTribunal Act] is dealt with in a concise manner and complemented with a helpful diagram illuminating the complexity of the new regime...Blackstone's Guide is still a valuable tool to help immigration practitioners steady themselves against the governments tidal changes.'Doron Blum (1 Pump Court), New Law Journal
