Expertise of specialist tribunals
One of the repeated themes from the Court of Appeal this year has been a reminder that in immigration cases it is considering appeals from a specialist Tribunal and will not always interfere with decisions. In a number of the cases considered below the Court of Appeal has repeatedly cited the case of AH (Sudan) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (SSHD) where Baroness Hale  said:
