Group Description

This is an action group, which is intended primarily for immigration legal avisors, trainee advisors and volunteers, with Immigration link, and possibly other similar agencies in the voluntary sector.

We stress active involvement of all members. It is not for the casual brouser. We expect everyone to fill in their 'Profile,' so that other members may know who you are, and your interests. Also, participation in group discussions, posting messages and asking questions is needed.

It is requested that new members study all the funtions as listed on the left hand side of the group page. These include: Files, Photos, Links, Polls, and Calendar, etc.

Please have a go at your own personal web page, under the 'Profile' feature, through Geo Cities. (Free for our members.)

We are involved with all kinds of visa applications for entry into the UK, concentrating on work progammes and students especially. We need to be knowledgeable about all aspects of immigration law because you never know what might crop up when you are assisting a client.

We try to help asymum seekers and detainees by informing them of various visa schemes that might enable them to come back to UK if they are removed. And there is a rapid accesleration in removals at the moment, many of which are unjustified. (But because of the shortage of legal advisors their cases are not being heard properly.)

We share practical information on these schemes and try to bring members up to date on recent developments. Immigration regulations are changing so rapidly these days that we ask everybosy to look out for such changes, and post details on this group page for all to see.

We are conducting a series of free training sessions in preparation for becoming an OISC immigration legal advisor. At the moment these are being help weekly, and are concentrating on preparation for your Level 1 assessment test.

PLEASE SEE MESSAGE NO. 165, posted on 13 Dec 2005 for 10 principles for all future advisors.
