Abstract

Examines whether the Law Lords frustrated the New Labour Government's efforts towards immigration and asylum reform during their 1997-2010 time in office, looking at the trends in judicial decision-making and their impact on government. Comments on the numbers and categories of cases involved in the period. Discusses decision-making regarding legislation such as the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees 1951and the relevant UK statutory immigration framework, the Immigration Rules, social security and support, and leave to appeal.
