The following Immigration practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) is a short-term category that enables non-European Economic Area (EEA) nationals under the age of 31 from certain specified countries to live and work in the UK for two years. The UK has reciprocal arrangements with the participating countries listed below.
The 2008 Statement of Intent provided that individual countries would need to apply to join the scheme and that entry and annual visa allocation levels would be based on:
the country’s arrangements for return of its nationals
the level of immigration risk their nationals are seen to pose, and
reciprocal mobility arrangements for UK citizens
This is not a category which leads to settlement and dependants are not permitted to accompany the main applicant without their own independent status.
The route may be considered by UK employers for eligible non-EEA national potential employees where no longer-term categories of stay are available, provided they are aware that time spent in the category will not lead to settlement after five years and any subsequent application in a different category will have to be made from overseas.
An applicant must:
score 40 points in the attributes areas (nationality and age)
score 10 points for maintenance, and
meet the additional non points-based requirements (detailed below)
See Precedent: Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) additional entry clearance—documents required for details of the documents required to evidence eligibility.

The principle of transferred maliceIf a person has a malicious intent towards X and, in carrying out that intent, injures Y, he is guilty of an offence. So, if D shoots at A with intent to kill him but kills B by mistake it is murder; the mistake as to the identity of the victim is irrelevant as D
Voluntary manslaughterVoluntary manslaughter consists of those killings which would be murder (because the accused has the relevant mental element for murder) but which are reduced to manslaughter because of one of the three special defences (loss of control, diminished responsibility or suicide
