When: Wednesday, 26th October 2016. 5:30pm for 6pm start. 2 hour seminar followed by food & drinks. This seminar is accredited for 2 CPD Hr(s).
Where: 36 Bedford Row, London, WC1R 4JH.
About the event:
Following the Brexit vote, the future of the UK’s immigration policy is uncertain. But with Theresa May and Amber Rudd setting the agenda, it’s likely that government powers will widen, and individual rights become more restricted. On an EU-level, the refugee crisis burns on as the EU-Turkey deal looks set to fail.
Join us for a focused discussion of the key developments affecting EEA nationals, appeal rights, enforcement and refugee policy.
Barristers from the 36 Immigration team will cover:
- EEA nationals & Brexit: Permanent Residence applications, appeals & human rights cases.
- Immigration Act 2016: overview of changes to appeal rights and enforcement powers.
- 36 Immigration’s Saoirse Townshend will share her first-hand experience as a lawyer working in a very ‘hostile environment’ in refugee camps in Chios, Greece and the reality of the EU-Turkey deal for asylum seekers.
As always, the Forum benefits from your input and provides an opportunity for both experienced practitioners and newcomers to share insights and opinions on the latest legal developments.
Our popular format includes short presentations and lively discussion, followed by drinks and amazing Middle Eastern food from Hiba Express.
Who should attend:
This Forum should benefit all immigration and asylum solicitors and their colleagues seeking to enhance and update their knowledge on issues relating to EEA nationals in the wake of the Brexit referendum result and the significant changes stemming from the 2016 Act. Caseworkers, litigators and advisors at all levels are very welcome to join us, whether working in private practice or with NGOs and other support agencies.
