The Convention Against Torture and Non-refoulement Claims Scheme (“the Scheme”) is a publicly-funded legal assistance scheme currently operated by the Duty Lawyer Service to represent claimants for claims of non-refoulement protection. To prepare legal practitioners for the Scheme, the Hong Kong Bar Association is organizing a full training programme on the law and practice relating to CAT and non-refoulement claims on 10-11, 17-18 June 2017. We are honoured to have invited leading experts and experienced practitioners in non-refoulement claims and refugee law to be our speakers in the training programme. There will be a case sharing session on Day 4 of the training programme for practitioners to share their experience in handling CAT claims under the Scheme.

The training programme consists of a series of of morning and afternoon sessions. Participants may choose to enrol on one or more sessions. This is to cater for those who have missed the previous top up courses organised by the Bar Association, or other CAT training sessions organised by the Security Bureau and/or the Academy of Law.

Those completing the full programme will be issued with a Certificate of Completion by the Hong Kong Bar Association and will be eligible to register with the Duty Lawyer Service to be included in the panel of the Scheme.

Course fee(s) paid shall under NO circumstances be refunded or transferred unless the enrolled course is full or cancelled.

Course Venue: Large Moot Court Room, 2/F, Cheng Yu Tung Tower, Centennial Campus, University of Hong Kong.

Course Materials 

Please note that NO hard copies of the course materials will be distributed on-site. Please prepare your own soft or hard copies of the course materials and bring to the course.
