Welcome to episode 104 of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This month I am joined by “immigration lawyer about town”, as she put it, Sonia Lenegan. Taking pity on me after my solo effort last month, Sonia is the legal and policy director at Rainbow Migration, a consultant solicitor at Saltworks and a volunteer at Asylos and the Unity Project. She previously worked at Hackney Law Centre and as the legal director at ILPA.

We discuss the change of Home Secretary, the direction of government immigration policy, some changes in policy and new visas and go through the latest case law. Our discussion is a bit more free ranging than for past update episodes and we’re interested in what you think of the slightly different approach. Let us know in comments or by email.
