Since 2010, BID has been carrying out 6-monthly surveys with people held in immigration detention to document their experiences of accessing legal advice while in detention, and to better understand the barriers they face. The upheaval caused by COVID-19 has meant that in 2020 it was not possible to carry out a legal advice survey. Instead, we decided to take a look at the data that we have collected over the last decade. In this review we analyse the trends and continuities in access to justice in immigration detention, within a broader context of shrinking of legal aid and hostile immigration policy.
