Final applications now being accepted for the Certificate in Immigration Law and Practice
Final applications are being accepted for the Diploma Centre’s Certificate in Immigration Law and Practice, which begins on 5 November. 
 
This certificate will offer an in-depth analysis of immigration law and its application in Ireland. The central pieces of legislation covered by the course include the Aliens Acts, the Immigration Acts, the Refugee Act 1996, the Illegal Immigrants (Trafficking) Act 2000, the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Acts, the International Protection Act 2015, and the numerous statutory instruments covering immigration and citizenship. The course also scrutinises the manner in which this legislation has been interpreted over the years by the courts, the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) and by Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS).
 
The course examines:
 
• The legal, social and political context of immigration to Ireland;
• The various visa and stamp categories that permit entry to and residence in the State, including employment and business visas;
• Issues associated with asylum, subsidiary protection, and forced migration; and
• Issues relating to deportation, removal, and repatriation.
 
Participants will be guided through the practical aspects of the law by experienced legal practitioners, members of the public sector, and high-ranking representatives of international bodies, non-governmental organisations, and large multinationals. 
 
This course begins on 5 November 2020. However, as this course is available to access live online or on demand on “playback” at a time that suits you, applicants may still join at this time.
