Sat 07 March | 9:30AM - 12:30PM | ADLS, Chancery Chambers, Auckland MAP


The aim of the workshop is to equip lawyers with the tools and the confidence to take on appeals and judicial review proceedings in the High Court.

This will be achieved by a consideration of the statutory requirements and an examination of all relevant documents. There will be a focus on immigration and refugee matters.

A complete set of precedents will be provided. Attendees will work through each of these and learn how to adapt them to their client’s case.

Learning outcomes

  • Gain a better understanding of the helpful hints and advocacy skills required such as preparing for appeals/judicial review, structuring documents to enhance and present client’s case most effectively, and the importance of evidence and how and where to find it.
  • Receive guidance on typical procedural steps and documents involved in an appeal or application for judicial review concerning an immigration, refugee or protection decision in the High Court and on appeal above that court. 
  • Learn more about how to use documents to clearly present a client’s case.
