Transnational families and British law: The role of an expert witness
Dr. Prakash Shah is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Law, Queen Mary College

Thursday, 10 March 2011

This lecture focuses on how the legal processes in British legal systems, and particularly those relating to immigration control, deal with issues concerning transnational families. More specifically it focuses on case studies where issues of validity and genuineness of family relationships are questioned by British officials and courts. In such contexts, expert witnesses can play a vital role, although that role is not necessarily free of problems. In fact it gives rise to new problems of both a practical and theoretical nature which are explored in the lecture. The cases presented are drawn from the speaker’s own experiences as an expert witness and illustrate the nature of the legal struggle which goes on among various actors involved in the legal process.

No pre-registration required - Free entry for the public. For 1.5 CPD points (solicitors and barristers), please register upon entry and submit a £10 fee.
