Chapter 11 End-of-chapter question guidance

The asylum process

1. What would be your priorities for change in the asylum system?

Over to you! But make sure you give reasons based on the system as it stands and its effects.

2. Critically assess paragraph 339L(iv) of the immigration rules.

Explain the reasoning behind paragraph 339L(iv).

Consider what ‘good reason’ might be, and any case law showing how the courts regard this. Consider any gap between the practical reality of ‘good reason’ and the way that the paragraph is applied in practice.

Is it necessary to have a provision of this kind, and if so, is there a way of improving its application or interpretation?
